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!  

Questions?  E-mail Mike Slingluff at or call (301) 525-5328

On Saturday, October 19, 2013, there's going to be a DISASTER in Montgomery County!  It may be natural or man-made, but one thing is for sure--it will be a fun time for First Class/Star/Life Scouts working on their Emergency Preparedness merit badge, and for Eagle Scouts, Venturers, and adults, too!


Montgomery Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) will be conducting a disaster drill and is in need of mock victims who are willing to get bloody, break bones, or whatever the scenario calls for (don't worry... they will be simulated injuries only.)  Details and registration information is contained in the attached flyer--or visit for details and to register.
