TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Front line employees at Promedica's Toledo Hospital teamed up Friday for the Disaster Olympics. The training program is held each year to prepare medical caregivers on how to respond during a natural disaster. 

Staff members cheered on their fellow employees, encouraging them to keep going while the teams participated in a series of events that simulate weather emergencies, mass casualites, bomb threats, fires and more. 

Disaster Specialist Susan Childers says doing the training in a fun way allows them to stay engaged while still learning valuable information. 

"That's what it's all about, to learn, to have fun, to be crazy, have a really awesome day and oh, by the way, 'I happened to learn these things,'" said Childers. "It's just another thing we do that usually helps front line employees in being prepared for disaster." 

The winner of the Disaster Olympics won a golden bed pan.
