Surgeons call for community response to mass casualty incidents

Shooting incidents are occurring throughout the US with increasing and alarming frequency. Among those in late 2013: the Washington, DC, Navy Yard on September 16—12 dead, 3 injured before the gunman took his own life; the Sparks, Nevada middle school on October 21—1 dead, 2 wounded before the student wielding the gun killed himself; the Los Angeles International Airport on November 1—1 dead, 3 wounded before police disabled the shooter; and the Paramus, New Jersey, shopping mall on November 4—no fatalities except the gunman, who committed suicide.
