The final exercise for CERT class 38 was held on June 7 at the Fairfax Co Fire & Rescue Academy. Over 100 actor/survivors came out to help us provide a realistic drill for our students. The students were presented with many situations and severity of injuries. Some of our 'walking wounded' helped out with rescues while other actors required extrication. The students thank you for helping them train, the actors thank you for your dedication to our community. Several students have signed up for the next class this fall. THANK YOU ACTORS, we all appreciate your help and hope you come back again. In fact over 140 actors came out during this class session to help out. THANK YOU! Also a big thank you to all the staff, instructors and other volunteers that helped make this exercise a big sucesess.
Thanks class 38. Continue with your training, stay in touch, participate as an actor-you will learn more than you'll think and promote the program of emergency preparedness in the community with one of our outreach events. You are now a member of the CERT family, be proud of what you have done.
