CERT-logoTwo Types of Volunteering:

  • Set the disaster stage
  • Be the victim

The CERT program needs volunteers to set up the facility to make it look like a disaster has occurred.  This job will take about an hour and begins at 1:00pm.

They also need volunteer “victims”, who are assigned dramatic roles and specific injuries.  A professional make-up artist applies moulage make-up and prosthetics to realistically simulate injuries.  This is an all-day role.  “Victims” are scheduled to arrive between 1:00pm and 2:00pm and are expected to stay for the duration of the drill, which ends at 8:00pm.

Snacks are provided throughout the day, and a pizza dinner accompanies the de-briefing.

Participants must be 14 years old or older.  Students between 14 and 18 years old must have a signed consent form from their parents.

Confirmation, guidelines, a volunteer agreement, and further information will be e-mailed to you.
