Mulvey, J., Shaw, B., Betzner, M., et al. (2022). Columbia Icefield Bus Rollover: A Case Study of Wilderness Mass Casualty Triage, Treatment, and Transport. (Abstract only.) Prehospital Emergency Care. 26(4): 608-616.
When an all-terrain bus rolled over while transporting tourists to explore a glacier inside a remote area of Jasper National Park, three people died and 21 needed transport. The authors examined the pre-hospital response and emphasized the importance of aeromedical surge capacity and the involvement of local physicians in the response to and management of wilderness mass casualty incidents.
