Own The Moment. Surviving Las Vegas October 1, 2017

The thoughts repeated over and over in Michelle Cole’s mind. She had heard a series of pops that sounded like fireworks. But when the second volley erupted she knew it was gunfire. Could this really be happening? It was just after 10pm, the night of October 1, 2017. Cole had travelled to Las Vegas with friends and family to attend the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival. She was enjoying the concert when a gunman opened fire on the crowd. Between 10:05 and 10:15pm, the shooter would fire more than 1,100 rounds into the crowd, killing 58 people. 851 others were injured from gunfire and the panic that resulted. Cole is a registered nurse and Trauma Program Manager, with a long history as a first responder. Being the head of trauma, she had felt that she needed training for mass casualty incidents to understand what to do. After the Pulse nightclub shooting on June 12, 2016, Cole traveled to Orlando and met with physicians and the head trauma nurse who had been involved in treating victims, and she also treated injured patients herself. After hearing the stories of those who survived when they ran, and those who were killed when they hid in the nightclub bathroom, she knew she needed to get active shooter training.
