Zombie Apocalypse (simulation) descends upon LBHS

The Laguna Beach High School (LBHS) theater students “performed as victims” of a mass casualty incident – Zombie Apocalypse – on Wednesday, May 31, that required the immediate response of these students enrolled in the Emergency Response Career Pathway.

Theater students utilized their theater make-up and costuming skills to create victims with various injuries sustained in an incident of this scope and size.

In addition, they employed their acting skills to act out different medical injuries and conditions, which could improve or escalate based on the treatment received by emergency response personnel. Emergency response students demonstrated their first responder skills learned. They performed search and rescue of the victims, triaged them, provided medical treatment, and much more. Laguna Beach Police and Fire Departments evaluated student performance as they determined the injuries of their victims and the appropriate treatment necessary.
