Lights and sirens lit up North Baltimore Sunday morning but not for a real emergency. First responders from all over the region came together for a mass casualty simulation training exercise at Pimlico Racecourse. “This is about as realistic as it gets,” said Scott Goldstein of the Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company. The elaborate mass casualty training exercise is meant to prepare first responders to stay clam in the chaos of a deadly attack. “So, based on what we see going around the world today, this falls right into play with what we’re seeing,” Goldstein added. The story line–including drug overdoses, a car driving into the infield and an active shooter–is not unlike the Las Vegas shooting, where more than 50 people were shot dead from a hotel room above. Doctors and nurses at Sinai Hospital are preparing to take in waves of patients.
