Disaster Day

Disaster Day participant with doctor and nurseDisaster Day is a simulation event held annually on the Bryan campus. It prepares future health care professionals by simulating a disaster and allows medical, nursing, pharmacy, radiology, EMS, and physical therapy students to collaborate care.

In order for Disaster Day to be as real as possible, more than 300 volunteers are needed to participate.

There are typically three volunteer shifts:

  1. Morning (8 a.m.-noon)
  2. Afternoon (1-5 p.m.)
  3. All day (8 a.m.-5 p.m.) lunch will be provided for all day volunteers

We need an array of volunteers:

  1. Parents with infants and/or small children
  2. Teens
  3. Pregnant women
  4. Individuals of all ages

No experience with acting or medical knowledge is required; we will provide volunteers the tools needed to portray a disaster day victim.
