MOSES LAKE (VIDEO) - These Columbia Basin Technical Skills Center students are not auditioning to be extras in The Walking Dead.

They were at Big Bend Community College on Tuesday to help out students in the Medical Simulation Lab in learning about the sort of injuries they could encounter in their careers.

It’s called Moulage, a French term for applying mock injuries for the purpose of medical training.

While they appear grizzly enough to look like they came from central casting for the zombie apocalypse, students construct their realistic wounds using basic theatrical stage makeup.

Moses Lake Firefighter and Paramedic Todd Schaze talked about using moulage helps make emergency medical personnel better at their jobs.
