Keeping it real: Eagle Scout hopeful creates simulation for emergency responders
It's 8 a.m. on a Saturday morning. A tornado has just ripped through town. There are an estimated 40 to 50 injured persons in and around St. Jude's Catholic Church. Paramedics have still not arrived on scene, so it's up to the city of Allen's Community Emergency Response Team -- or CERT -- to navigate the destruction and stabilize the condition of those in need of immediate medical attention.
