Emergency Preparedness practice drill opportunity for older Scouts -- Sunday, Sept. 15 - REGISTRATION REQUIRED

Posted By Peter Minderman, Monday, September 02, 2013
An opportunity for older Scouts (age 14+) to participate in a county-wide Animal Response exercise.

For Boy Scouts, this probably would satisfy Emergency Preparedness merit badge requirement #7 - discuss with your merit badge counselor.

YOU MUST SIGN-UP and fill out a PERMISSION FORM.
Contact Pete Mapes,mapesni@aol.com

Limited to first 25 youth that sign-up.

-------
Dear Scouts, Troop Leaders, and Parents/Guardians,
The Red Cross of the National Capital Area and the County Animal Response Team will be holding a shelter exercise September 15, 2013. The goal of this exercise is to practice setting up animal and human shelters in conjunction with each other, and registering humans and animals for each shelter.
Scouts participation is needed for the registration process. The youth will be assigned a "role” that will force volunteers to react like they would in a real-life situation. For example, one scout may have a service animal or another may not have any documents for their pet. The youth will be given their roles ahead of time. We’d like the youth to register their pet and themselves in the shelters and take note of the way in which volunteers reacted in each situation. The youth will also be fed lunch which is part of the Red Cross’ mass care duties.
Please direct any questions/concerns to Becky Zorn, Outreach Coordinator, Montgomery County Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security. We need 25 boys and slots will be filled on a first come first serve basis. Permission slips are necessary to register for the exercise. The youth may come early/stay late if they are interested in seeing the way the shelters are set up and taken down. Because the youth will need to fulfill certain roles, we are asking for Scouts age 14 and older.
Details
Date: September 15
Time: noon-2pm
Location: White Oak Recreation Center
Lunch will be provided. Please bring your own labeled stuffed animal!
