The instructional film showcases a staged bus accident with multiple casualties inside. Firefighters practiced the rescue techniques on several volunteers including children to prepare themselves for real accidents.
Doctors say the film is a vital tool to teach proper rescue techniques.
Dr. Lou Romig, the Florida EMSC Physician Advisor, said, "This is not necessarily training for specific bus accidents so much as being able to take care of a large group of adults and children who have been injured and being able to sort out the victims from the very start so the sickest one gets the care the most expeditiously."
The film will be released early next year across Florida. Producers hope the film will be released nationally and internationally as well. It's being produced for the Florida Health Department.
