COME OUT AND PLAY! CERT victim actors needed Saturday, September 20th!

Hi folks,
We just got a time sensitive request from Fairfax County fire and rescue for victim actors on September 20th. I apologise for the very short notice, but this is an excellent way to "play victim". It is also a truly eye opening way to see how the fire and rescue department responds and coordinates response to mass casualty incidents. If you can help, please contact our actor victim coordinator Kevin at

Here is the email we received this morning.

Since CERT victims were a huge success last time (referring to the July 19th 1st Battalion drill at Herndon high school), the 6th Battalion would like to do something similar. We are looking for 30 volunteers (CERT, FRD, etc) for the 20th of September from 0800-1300 hrs. Need the volunteers there by 0700 for moulage. We are looking for all ages, but please no younger than 14. Be sure to wear clothes appropriate for the weather; and wear clothing that can get torn/dirty/stage blood stained.
The drill will take place at Mount Vernon High School, 8515 Mount Vernon Rd. Alexandria, VA.
