DRAMATIC scenes at ECU Joondalup had students on high alert.

Paramedical students, that is.

The future emergency workers were taking part in a simulated mass casualty drill, reacting to a fire that had caused multiple casualties.

The victims had injuries ranging from minor burns to serious fractures. Gritty realism was provided by the ECU Simulation Centre, which used moulage make-up to create grisly injuries.

Paramedical science is a three-year course.
