Tough Mudder Medical Support
At the request of our partners at Cabarrus EMS, the Metrolina SMAT provided personnel to support the Tough Mudder obstacle course in Mt Pleasant, NC on October 25th and 26th. Tough Mudder is a 10-12 mile obstacle course that focuses on the challenge and completion though teamwork versus competition. It is also raises a lot of money for Wounded Warrior Project! Over the course of the two day event the Metrolina SMAT helped provided 50 volunteers including a Physician, Nurses, Paramedics, EMT’s, a Tele-communicator, and other support personnel. Some of the personnel were from the Metrolina SMAT and others were from regional partners including the Charlotte Fire SMAT III. Several community colleges were also able to incorporate their students into the event for some real-world hands-on learning. A special thanks to Cabarrus EMS for the invite to assist, and MedPrep Consulting for the logistics support and event coordination.
