Subject: [MPD-2d] Volunteers needed April 4, 2008 at 4 DC hospitals for an exercise.
4 DC hospitals in Washington ( Washington Hospital , Children's,
National Rehab and Veterans Affairs) are conducting an exercise
involving a dirty bomb scenario and we will need about 100 victim
volunteers. Please feel free to announce this volunteer opportunity
through your network and ask that those interested in volunteering
contact me prior to March 26.
The volunteer duty would be on Friday, April 4, 2008, 008:30-12:30.
Refreshments would be provided.
Volunteers will receive a briefing and receive "role assignments"
describing their injuries and condition. Some would be bomb blast
victims, some would be existing patients requiring transfer due to
facility damage, and some would be designated as "contaminated" and
would require decontamination via a "dry run' through the VA
hospital's Decontamination Shower System. A few may play roles as
concerned friends or family members.
Please contact me at via e-mail (preferred) or phone if you wish to
register as an exercise volunteer. Provide your cell phone number or
other contact number. We request that if you have a cell phone that
you bring it on the day of the exercise so we can communicate.
I will contact all those who register a week or so prior to the
