“The Thurston County Fire Chiefs Association, Thurston County Law Enforcement Agencies, and the Thurston County Mass Casualty Incident Committee agreed that there is a need for further training to enhance unified command efforts on the scene during mass casualty incidents, as reported by Thurston’s Emergency Services.
