What is Code Orange?
Code Orange is a tool that provides risk-ready training to emergency medical staff in preparation for catastrophic events in a networked, information-intensive, immersive training environment. By way of example: While working in a virtual hospital, you hear that a weapons-of-mass-destruction event just occurred in your area and thousands of people are injured or killed. In 15 minutes, the first wave of casualties begin to arrive by ambulance, helicopter, car, and on foot. As part of the medical team, your job is to save lives by working in concert with other staff to implement the hospital’s streamlined process for handling mass casualty situations. Code Orange is built on the Hospital Emergency Incident Command System (HEICS) protocol.
