Mock Disaster Victims Needed

Posted By Paula Prunier, Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Montgomery Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Needs YOU!

WHO:      Venturers, Explorers, older Boy Scouts (age 14 minimum), and adults
WHEN:     Saturday, December 7, 2013
               7:45 a.m. until Noon
WHERE:   Bethesda Fire Department
               6600 Wisconsin Avenue
               Chevy Chase, MD 20815

Please join Montgomery CERT for an exciting and fun day as a mock disaster victim—

·         Help CERT volunteers practice their skills with a hands-on emergency exercise
·         MCPS students can earn Student Service Learning (SSL) credit for participating
·         Eligible Boy Scouts can fulfill Emergency Preparedness Merit Badge Requirement #7

After check-in, volunteers will receive a briefing on the emergency scenario.  Then, they will be assigned roles and work with CERT moulage experts, who will create realistic-looking "injuries.”  Volunteers are encouraged to use their prior knowledge of first aid to become realistic actors—demonstrating appropriate symptoms for their assigned "injuries.”

Please Note:
·         Participation is limited to youth ages 14 or older and adults
·         Come dressed in old clothes—fake blood stains are likely
·         Wear protective footwear (e.g., hiking boots).  No sandals or open-toed shoes.
·         Dress appropriately for the weather—rain gear, layers, etc.
·         You are welcome to bring a blanket or small ground cover to sit/lie on outside. 
          The scenario may require you to be "down” (even if the ground is wet/muddy)
·         Bring a water bottle to keep hydrated and snacks, if you like
·         Bring your signed Hold Harmless Agreement/Talent Release Form (attached to your
          confirmation e-mail/admission ticket)
·         Adult chaperones must remain with youth participants at all times.

REGISTER BY DECEMBER 2, 2013—or call for late registration!
