Federal Way students, school staff respond to simulated earthquake
The Thomas Jefferson High School’s Student Emergency Response Club recently sponsored its 14th annual Mass Casualty Incident Drill (MCI) and emergency evacuation drill.
The MCI simulated a shallow 7.2 magnitude earthquake, trapping more than 70 students and staff members in 12 separate buildings. This drill tested the school’s building safety plan, using approximately 150 staff members and 300 emergency response student volunteers.
