Hope in the Midst of Chaos: The Las Vegas Shooting Story

Quiet turned to terror the evening of Sunday October 1,
2017 at the Combined Communications Center of Las
Vegas. A lone gunman had opened fire on the Route 91
Harvest Music Festival, on the famous Las Vegas Strip,
where 22,000 concert-goers were in attendance. Calls
poured into the center as people were running for their lives.
From gunshot wounds to trample victims, misinformation to
scene safety issues, Matt discusses his experience that
evening, the lessons they learned from this event, and how
you can prepare and adapt for a new normal. Through grit
and determination, the Las Vegas Fire telecommunicators
put together the largest fire and medical response Las Vegas
has ever seen, and ensure that everyone who they came into
contact with, found hope in the midst of chaos.
