Emergency Medical Response Scenario 1: You Are the Emergency Medical Responder You are called to the scene of an industrial plant after a report of an explosion. As you arrive, you see numerous people fleeing the plant, walking quickly and running to the parking lot across the street. Some are being helped by others. Smoke is billowing from the building and flames can be seen at the back of the building. A pungent odor fills the air. You notice two people leaving the building, coughing and struggling to breathe when suddenly one of them collapses just outside the exit. The other person trips and falls to the ground hitting his head. You hear another explosion. Glass and debris are flying everywhere and the flames begin to spread. Lesson 7: Putting It All Together
