Emergency Preparedness Exercise
The Emergency Management Department is excited to inform you of an opportunity to participate in a MAJOR EXERCISE that will be held in the Lewisville-Clemmons area. The exercise will occur on Saturday, April 30th beginning at 9:00 am. Local response and volunteer agencies will be involved.
As we recall the history of events that have affected the triad area over the years, each of us should understand the importance of Emergency Preparedness. This exercise is one of several ongoing efforts to strengthen local response capability during emergencies or disasters.
The scenario for this exercise will involve numerous casualties, and requires 125 volunteers to serve as victims. These victims will simulate various injuries, be transported to a treatment facility, and be treated for their injuries.
As a volunteer victim, you will have the rare opportunity of witnessing our first responders in action, along with carrying-out role play. Lunch will be provided.
If you, your agency, or organization would like to participate in this exercise, or would like to receive more information regarding it, go to: www.em.cityofws.org and click on the "Volunteers Needed" link.
