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!
