DISASTER DRILL PREP – Lake Superior State University criminal justice student Matthew Caron hands off some theatrical blood during preparations for a disaster simulation held Aug. 1 in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. Caron has just touched up an abrasion on Andrea Aquire's arm. LSSU's Health Care Exploration Camp teamed up with the School of Nursing and War Memorial Hospital for the spot exercise that simulated a bus accident under the International Bridge. Students from an LSSU charter school, Dearborn's Advanced Technology Academy, were the victims. The exercise involved city, state, and federal emergency responder and law enforcement agencies.
