In my work studying Public Health, I've been assigned to come up with a disaster scenario, mass casualty incident, local to the Toledo area and then address it. I've got no problem applying the material to address a scenario, but I must admit a failure of imagination to line up one appropriate to the assignment that isn't just flat, easy, or assuming something I know nothing about. I figure you folks are of a wider local knowledge base than I, and if anyone knows how Murphy and her law would screw with Toledo, it is you.
- Around 50-300ish casualties
- No Hazardous Materials (So no Davis Bessie or your grandma's meatloaf)
- I'm trying to avoid things like 'wreck in the stands at the speedway' and Airplane crash at TOL, because there are response crews there already and that defeats the purpose of problem solving a response.
- No Flooding river or Blizzards. Too large in scope and slow unfolding for this purpose.
I was debating things like a ferry/barge accident, or a building collapse? Maybe an industrial accident at the Jeep plant? I just don't want to make a bunch of random guesses and assumptions about what might be a hazard or disaster waiting to happen. We've already discussed a catastrophic explosion of the Andersons silos and a Megabus wreck at 3am.
So, it's Toledo. What could possibly go wrong?
