What is Moulage?
Moulage (French: casting/moulding) is the art of applying mock injuries for the purpose of training Emergency Response Teams and other medical and military personnel. Moulage may be as simple as applying pre-made rubber or latex “wounds” to a healthy “patient’s” limbs, chest, head, etc., or as complex as using makeup and theatre techniques to provide elements of realism (such as blood, impalements, open fractures, etc.) to the training simulation.
It is also a whole lot of fun!
Unfortunately, Ronica, nor I will be at this meeting, so I’m hoping some of you will take pictures and share them on our Facebook Page (or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org)!!

Note from Lionel of HCOHSEM:
“Thanks for your help! All the information is correct, please have everyone report to Room 12, for now. We are going to do the exercise, or at least most of it, inside. Malcolm and I will finalize how it will flow this week. We will likely have/need no more than 6 ‘live’ victims and the rest will be rescue dummies.
