WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Nevada College of Emergency Physicians and the American College of Emergency Physicians today issued a joint statement about the mass shooting in Las Vegas.
"On behalf of the emergency physicians in Nevada and across the nation, we extend our heart-felt sympathy to the victims and their friends and families in regard to the horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas.
The incredible emergency response in such a short timeframe—from the physicians, nurses and emergency medical services in Nevada, as well as law enforcement—has been nothing less than miraculous.
While the shock and grief from yet another heinous mass killing and wounding are still fresh, we remain devoted to preparing our nation to best manage the consequences of such violent active incidents. Our prayers go out to the many injured who are still fighting for their lives."
