The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) and the National Disaster Life Support Foundation (NDLSF) today announced an agreement to greatly enhance the level of disaster training available to emergency medical personnel. “The American College of Emergency Physicians endorses the NDLS courses as the gold standard in all-hazards training for medical response to mass casualty incidents,” said Robert Heard, ACEP’s associate executive director. “They establish critical standards for responding to mass casualty events in order to maximize benefits to the victims, minimize risks to responders and enhance team effectiveness.” The emergence of a national standard fulfills a long-standing need in disaster response. Having all responders to a mass casualty event trained to the same standard greatly enhances the effectiveness of the overall team. NDLSF-ACEP_Press_Release.pdf
