Wonderful volunteering opportunity

Attention CERT Coordinators & Members:

The BWI Marshall Airport and Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) is hosting the 2020 EPLEX Full Scale Exercise on May 2, 2020.

EPLEX is designed to test and validate the airport's ability to respond to an airplane crash.

Actors are being recruited to play the roles of plane crash patients, friends and family seeking information about plane crash victims, and to play the roles of media and "other" interested parties through the exercise sim-cell.

Actor's have the responsibility to make this exercise as realistic as possible by acting out their assigned role. Remember, emergency responders are depending on you in order to conduct training.  The most important thing about the volunteer program is to have fun. Volunteers will learn about emergency response and how Fire/EMS operations are conducted.  A lite breakfast and lunch will be provided for all volunteers.
Volunteer Participation
·         Participation is limited to those 16 years of age and older.
·         Anyone younger than 18 years of age must have a waiver form filled out and signed by a parent or guardian prior to the exercise. 

·         All volunteers for EPLEX are required to pre-register using the provided link below.
·         Sign-in will begin at 6:00 AM at the Gold Lot of the BWI Marshall Airport.  Volunteers will receive specific instructions for parking through email.
