Submitted by: fancylad 2 months ago in Weird

Theater kids from Sheridan College in Ontario, Canada faked being shot for the Halton Regional Police Department's training drills, complete with fake wounds and blood. ACTING!

We did this in the military a few times for the corpsmen and marines that'd be used in an ER situation.  We had a bigger exercise once at Salton Sea where "civilians" were overrun by local terrorists/rioters and the Marines had to 'get us out of there" and onto Echos that flew us back to Pendleton.  GOD that was fun!

Wow, so original.  Haven't seen that since last week

This was put on by the Nursing Department of the school, for which my wife is a nursing instructor.   It included the local Police and fire departments, two life-flight helicopters, school security and the multi-media classes.  

My daughter helped with the mulage (make-up), and I did signage and general gopher work.

It takes a LOT of preparation and the cooperation of local emergency response personnel, businesses and community. 

In the report, notice the blue guns the police have. These are blank-firing firearms.  During the drill there is a perimeter set up. ANY officer inside that perimeter is only allowed the blue-guns.  If an officer is carrying a regular gun he must stay outside of the perimeter. (unless there is an emergency, then the drill is halted.)

This is actually a fairly common practice. There are actually "make-up kits" with fake gunshot wounds, stab wounds, fake traumas, fake eviscerations, and the list goes on and on. Being a volunteer firefighter and search & rescue member, I've seen the kits. We have actually talked about doing this sort of thing in the area I live in. We have done it before with a plane crash scenario, and want to do it with a mass-causality shooting-type incident next time around. Also, the "guns" depicted in the pictures here are fake. Notice the blue color? They are solid plastic "trainers", designed to replicate the appearance, feel, size, and approximate weight of the real thing, while being perfectly safe. Good training!

Given what the world is today, I think it is good for cops, long with firemen, doctors, and nurses should be up to date on how to take handle large emergency events.

It's very hard for me to view these photos without thinking, involuntarily, of Sandy Hook. No doubt this realism is useful for first responders as part of their training. Even knowing the wounds are fake, I find some of these images disturbing and I'm not sure the media should be publishing them for the "Wow!" factor. Then again, movies contain many times this level of gore.

Stop the world, I want to get off.

squrlz4ever There are a number of conspiracy theorists who say sandy hook was faked this way by democrats to force  gun grabbing legislation.

thezigrat oh Jesus. The reason why they preemptively denied it happened is a massacre of American children obviously raises the question of gun control, even if legislators failed to act.

thezigrat Yes, I know. One of them, as reported here on IAB, was recently jailed for harrassing the father of a child who'd been murdered in the massacre.

They did something similar here except it wasn't an attack. It was a plane crash. Lots of seriously injured people with fake blood, missing skin, etc...
The best part is one of the goriest pictures made the front page of the paper so anyone looking at the paper was greeted with someone's face that appeared to be torn open. ...until you read the article and realized it was fake.

stupid to put yourself in front of a policeman's gun, and HOPE he has blanks in it!  Some old lady volunteered for just such an exercise last year, and got shot dead by the cop.

spanz Pay closer attention. Notice that all the guns are blue? They are fake. Solid plastic "trainers". Same appearance, shape, feel, and approximate weight as the real thing, with absolutely no danger of it firing a round.
