The CERT Team of Clinton, in Southern Maryland, is looking for volunteer participants for a mock disaster search and rescue drill.  This volunteer opportunity will be the second in the series of follow-up exercises from CERTEX PGC 2016 Function Exercise held in June.

CERT-trained responders and volunteer victims needed. Victim participants will be creatively disguised by our talented makeup artists with disaster makeup to simulate real-life injuries after a disaster.  Volunteers posing as victims should wear old clothes they do not mind getting dirty or torn.

Following is the Eventbrite registration link for the CERTEX PGC 2016 Fall Drill.  The location will be determined later in September.

Come join us and help us improve our response capabilities in wide area search for a mass casualty incident.

Feel free to share this information with your family, friends and coworkers.
