Set for the worst: BIFD hosts ‘Mega Code’ paramedic training | Photo gallery

There were 48 heart attacks on Bainbridge Island last Saturday — and all in the same location.

But that’s OK. It worked out as well as it could, because there was plenty of help around.

Plenty of highly qualified help.

Actually, if you were going to have a massive heart attack last weekend, Saturday, at the Bainbridge Island Fire Department’s Station 23 on Phelps Road, was kind of the ideal place to do it. That is because it was the site of the annual “Mega Code” drill session for the University of Washington’s Medic One paramedic training program. Twenty-four students from nine different departments, some from as far away as The San Juan Islands, converged on Station 23 for the big day, one of several such “field trips” they undergo throughout the 10-month program.

The Review’s Luciano Marano was there to record the response. His favorite shots are collected here.
