OnPoint on WACH Fox: How would the Midlands respond to a mass casualty event?
COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) - On this week's OnPoint on WACH Fox we look at the Las Vegas shooting and if the Midlands would be prepared if a similar mass casualty event played out here at home.
The shooting massacre in Las Vegas is bringing up questions of safety and readiness in cities around the country. All over America, law enforcement of?cials, politicians and hotel and concert managers say that while little could be done to prevent the shooter's rampage, cities can ramp up preparedness.
Many say banning outdoor events won't stop this type of mass violence, neither will tighter security at sporting events, concerts, and large events.
America's way of life is so public and freedom of assembly is at the very foundation of rights to which citizens are accustomed.
This week on OnPoint on WACH Fox we examine living with the threat and how local law enforcement, emergency officials and hospitals would handle such a crisis.
