The kit includes 40 numbered tags have different injuries printed on them and otyher materials, so that your Search and Rescue and Triage teams can practice their skills. Hand out the tags to selected students before the drill, and then during the drill check to see if the "victims" are found, identified, and taken to the appropriate location. By exercising the system, teachers will learn and practice the skills that will help them in a real disaster. The victim tags fit into a standard-size plastic name badge.
