                                         Mass Casualty Response Exercise

On Saturday May 13th the Department of Emergency Services and the Chester County Economic Development Council spon-
sored a functional exercise, run by our contractor, Binns and Associates, at the Exton Square Mall. This was the second step in
a process intended to develop the skills of County providers to provide effective EMS treatment at a mass casualty scene.
The exercise scenario involved a small school bus transporting disabled students from a local private school being struck be a
private vehicle fleeing an armed robbery at a jewelry store in the mall. The victims included two robbers, one deceased and the
other still brandishing a handgun. There were fifteen injured students and attendants on the bus with various traumatic inju-
ries.
As a functional exercise the participants utilized a scale map and miniature fire trucks, ambulances and police cars to show
what they would do. Unified command was set up, EMS positions in incident command were appointed, command vest were
utilized, and triage was done using the new SMART triage system. All of the patients were transported to appropriate facilities
within one hour of the time the second robbery suspect was disarmed and the scene was declared safe.
The purpose of this series of mass casualty drills and exercises is to heighten awareness of the newly revised Chester County
EMS Mass Casualty Response Plan, ensure that providers are becoming proficient in use of the colored tarps and SMART tri-
age tags that we recently distributed and that all personnel have received adequate training on ICS and NIMS.
The third and final portion of this contract calls for Binns and Associates to hold a full-scale exercise, which will be on Sunday
Sept. 17, 2006 at the Exton Square Mall. More information will be distributed to services involved shortly OR you can contact
Kelly Rhoades of Binns and Associates at www.kelly@BinnsAssoc.com if you want to participate.

                                                         Valerie Peck


                                           Valerie Peck joined DES in 1998 as a Support Staff for Ad-
                                           ministration before becoming the Employment Coordina-
tor in 2000. Valerie is the first point of contact when applying for a job in DES. She is the de-
partment’s liaison with Chester County Human Resources.

Valerie recruits and coordinates pre-employment testing for 9-1-1 telecomunicator training. She
starts her recruitment period for each class three months prior. Initially, sending out testing noti-
fication letters, dispensing the pre-employment tests along with criminal background checks on
all test takers. A panel meets to review the applicants’ work experience and their test scores, to
determine which applicants to bring in to interview. Although, the trainers are involved in this
determination, they are not involved in the interview process. Those participants include the
Deputy Director and Assistant Deputy Director for 9-1-1 Communications, radio room supervisors
and the Deputy Director for Administration as well as Valerie.

In addition to 9-1-1 recruiting, a typical day for Valerie entails handling all employee information
and records, new hire process, as well as distributing merit reviews to the managers. She facili-
tates the department’s policy and procedure manual, job descriptions, and the United Way cam-
paign, dress down days, and maintain locker assignments for the radio room personnel. She also
maintains the vacancy report, which provides up-to-date information on all DES job positions for
planning purposes.

Prior to Emergency Services, Valerie was a Senior Asset Marketing Technician with the Resolution
Trust Corporation where she packaged and marketed residential, commercial and consumer loan
transactions from failed savings and loans to investors all across the country. Valerie has also
worked in the mortgage and construction industries. Valerie graduated Summa Cum Laude from
PJA Paralegal School and is currently working towards her Business Management degree.
Valerie resides in Kennett Square with her husband, Rob, daughters Victoria and Christine, mother
Rosaline, two cats and a hamster.
