LifeTec dummies used in Boston

‘A cost-effective mannikin when large numbers of casualties are required – they have little weight to them (8 kg). and would be perfect for a large, multi-agency exercise where a large number of casualties/bodies are required to be seen but not necessarily rescued – rather a scenario where emergency rescue teams have to be trained in the triage and management of multiple casualties.

Think: aviation incident, train crash, terrorist blast, large building collapse etc.’

LifeTech is advertising the use of these dummies in BOSTON! 

Why not just say, dummies as used very successfully in –

                    The Boston Marathon Bombing April 2013

                    The Drummer Lee Rigby event May 2013 

                     The MH17 Shootdown, Ukraine  July, 2014

                     Paris Bataclan Friday 13th   November 2015

                     Brussels airport blast    March 2016

 Patrick Hennington reports –  The mass casualty staging company called CrisisCast.

‘STAGING REALITY’ – CrisisCast specializes in replicating mass casualty events.

emergency protocol disaster training combined with “internationally credited film crews,” that bring their high-end stagecraft to life, through a collection of “role players, stunts, medical simulations and combat flashpoints,”

Cast may also make use of “pyrotechnics, wardrobe, special effects, covert and aerial footage,” depending on the clients needs

“Our producers work with your trainers to create a ‘script’ that enables the role play actors to know when to trigger key developments in an evolving crisis management scenario. We brief and rehearse the team – where possible on location – but at least with video surveillance footage

ever important task of having the “joint ability to respond to the press,” in a partnership with the company’s clients through a multitude of social media platforms on the internet.

“Nothing works as effectively in dealing with real-world disasters as rehearsal.” – CrisisCast

Also note worthy, Cast states, it has the ability to create “highly credible, dramatic scenarios to bear preparing your people for the worst,” employing both “psychological and practical tools,” in their disaster training – all the while making sure that role playing actors, as well as crew have signed non-disclosure agreements (NDA’s) before each scripted event. Here’s another passage depicting the kind of psychological implementation used to achieve a successful Cast simulation:

“Our role play actors are psychologically trained in criminal and victim behaviour. They bring intense realism to simulated mass casualty incidents on the battlefield, during kidnap and ransom and emergency evacuation situations and in hostile threat incidents in urban or public places.

In so doing, CrisisCast provides learners with an irrevocable first encounter with the emotional challenges of any hostile incident.”

In the YouTube clip below, the intricate dynamics within a staged crisis are witnessed when ‘fictional’ European countries are pitted against one another during riot-scene training with theBlack Watch, 3rd Battalion, Royal Regiment of Scotland (3 SCOTS) – The video mentions the UN’s involvement as well – could this kind of ‘training’ also be used under a modern day Operation Gladio?
