Course Description

The purpose of the Pediatric Disaster Triage:Utilizing the JumpSTART© Method online educational module is to provide a review of mass casualty incident (MCI) triage concepts and tools such as Simple Triage and Rapid Treatment (START) for adults and JumpSTART© for children. This training allows participants to learn about these MCI concepts and tools and apply them through interactive scenarios.

It is our hope that pre-hospital, and hospital professionals, primary healthcare providers, school nurses, and public health department personnel will utilize these materials to further enhance the care of children during disasters.


There are multiple sections to this interactive module. EMSC is aware that the first section, Children and Disasters, is not completely functional. However, the following sections, including the interactive practice scenarios, are functioning without any problems. EMSC is working to resolve the issue.
