HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — A Henderson university has opened up its disaster life support center in southern Nevada that will prepare students to prioritize their work during man-made or natural mass casualty events.
Touro University opened the Chantal and Stephen J. Cloobeck Regional Center for Disaster Life Support Monday, more than two months after the Oct. 1 mass shooting.
It is certified by the National Disaster Life Support Foundation.
The university welcomes students, staff, first responders and anyone that wants to gain disaster life skills to the center's lab.
The university plans to offer an introductory course.
Touro also opened its new Regional Center for Clinical Simulation which will prepare students for surgeries using new state-of-the-art technology.
