A new initiative aims to help get Omaha firefighters ready for a mass casualty situation. This includes putting special kits in 24 emergency response vehicles. 

 With the increase with mass casualty incidents and mass shootings across the country. I felt an obligation as a servant of our community to prepare for a larger type of incident," Omaha firefighter Dustin Talacko said. "If we have to go above and beyond to provide that extra security, then we will because that's what firefighters do." 

Talacko's goal is raise $25,000 for the kits by the start of this year's College World Series on June 16.
