Volunteers Needed for Airport Disaster Exercise

CERT members requested to participate!

The Broward Sheriff’s Office Fire Rescue Division in conjunction with the Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport will be conducting a simulated multiple patient exercise on November 7, 8 & 9 from 0900 to 1200. We are in need of participants to play the roles of both patients and family members for this exercise which will help to prepare our agencies in the event of a real incident.

If you have never participated in one of these exercises before you should definitely sign up to participate. You will have an opportunity to see how the professional responders put their triage skills to task and handle numerous “victims” and “family members” on a large scale incident.

Please read the attached letter from Battalion Chief Andrews (MS Word format only, sorry) and email him directly if you are able to participate.
