KCU students train for disasters with realistic drills

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - From natural disasters to bombings to active shooters, students at Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences spent the week learning how to use their lifesaving skills regardless of the situation. 

Students took part in advanced disaster life support drills with real people crying for their help and injuries made to look like they almost could be real. Using make-up and fake body parts or organs, people of all ages volunteered to act as victims in these drills so the students could use their medical training to figure out the best way to help. 

Getting this certification is a requirement for KCU students. 

Watch the video above for some of the sights and sounds of what they experienced.
