Wake Forest EMS conducting drill today, April 7, at the Coliseum

This announcement was emailed to students, faculty and staff today by Wake Forest Communications and External Relations: 

Wake Forest’s student-run Emergency Medical Service (EMS) will participate today, April 7, in a mass casualty drill to provide invaluable hands-on scenario training in the event of a serious accident or on- campus emergency.

The drill will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

In a highly visual event, the student volunteers will be dispatched to a simulated incident at the Coliseum and will practice how to call for additional resources to assist with the incident. The student EMTs will be unaware of what the incident is until the training occurs and will conduct themselves as though a mass casualty incident has happened, in keeping with how local and state emergency services train. “Patients” with varying degrees of simulated injuries will be a part of the incident.

The Wake Forest EMS is a group of student volunteers who respond as EMTs on campus to 911 medical calls 24/7 during the academic year. The EMS now has a new office on the ground floor of the Reynolds Gym near the Student Health Service, making it easier to respond to emergency calls on campus.

The Wake Forest EMS will participate in the drill in conjunction with the Forsyth County EMS, the Winston-Salem Fire Department, Wake Forest Student Health Service and the Wake Forest Police Department.

Maya Angelou Garden Party planned for April 8

Wake Forest University is honoring poet, actress, author and longtime professor Maya Angelou in celebration of what would have been her 90th birthday.

Angelou was Reynolds Professor of American Studies at Wake Forest for more than 30 years and inspired generations of students to become better writers, thinkers and citizens. Angelou died in 2014 at the age of 86 and would have turned 90 years old on April 4.

One of a series of events scheduled will be a Maya Angelou Garden Party on April 8 from 2-4 p.m. in Bailey Park, adjacent to Wake Downtown, Wake Forest’s STEM-centric urban campus in the Innovation Quarter. A rain date is set for Sunday, April 15.

The student-organized event is free and open to the public.

A poetry slam and spoken word performances will honor Angelou’s legacy. Food trucks, music and lawn games are also part of the celebration.
