This is a very exciting opportunity to help your community. Live "victims" are essential to providing high quality training, and you'll learn quite a bit too! We'll even throw in lunch.
You need to arrive at the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Academy (4600 West Ox Rd. Fairfax, VA) by 9:30am. The drill should be completed by 3:00pm. We will need you to participate for the entire time. However, if you need to leave early due to an emergency, just let a Controller know so we can account for you. Due to limited parking, it is requested you carpool as much as possible.
The schedule for the date usually goes something like this:
9:00am - Arrive and park.
We prefer adults, but will gladly accept minors 15 years and older with signed parental consent (contact firstname.lastname@example.org for the form) and a full understanding of what's involved. If you would like a child younger than 15 to participate, they must be accompanied by a responsible adult who will not participate as a victim but will stay near the child during the entire exercise. At checkout, those that would like them can receive a certificate signifying 6.5 hours of community service provided.
Please give your name, phone number and E-mail address to email@example.com and let them know you read about it on the blogspot.
