A new class teaches first responder skills to ISU students

The sound of screams and the sight of blood welcomed around 20 honors students when they entered an apartment on Iowa State's campus. But don't worry, it was just a very realistic demonstration that tested the first responder skills of 20 honors students. It's all part of a new class being taught by Clayton Oliver, ISU's emergency manager. He wants to create a course that teaches people how to be their own first responder in cases of large disaster events, like the tornado simulation in this video. Oliver hopes to eventually create a program that creates a safer, more resilient campus.
