TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The 181st Indiana National Guard was out at Indiana State University Sunday.
They were helping with a mass casualty simulation.
Students from the Nursing and Health and Human Services Program practicd what they should do should a disaster strike.
They practiced search and extraction and immediate treatment in mobile hospital tents.
Officials say training scenarios like these are crucial for students.
"It helps with our thought process, medical triage and treatment. It helps to get any possible patient scenario or complaint or injury in our head so when the time is actually here, we can be prepared," said Nicole Hall, nurse practitioner.
Hall said they've done these scenarios several times this year already.
UPDATE 10:45 P.M.: Many Indiana State Police dispatches were reporting accidents on major roads due to slick weather conditions Sunday night.
With some of the coldest nights of the season on the way, shelters are preparing for a rush of people trying to stay warm.
Christmas is just over two weeks away, but it came early for some very special kids in Hancock County.
