The Kirkland Community Emergency Response Team needs 32 volunteers for its final simulation drill in mid-November, in which newly trained CERT participants demonstrate their disaster skills.
The drill is on Saturday, Nov. 18 at Kirkland City Hall. Volunteers will begin between 7:10-9:45 a.m., depending in which role they choose.
CERT needs five volunteers to help set up the facility to make it look like a disaster occurred and 27 more to play as “survivors” of the disaster. CERT hires a professional make-up artist to apply moulage make-up and prosthetics to realistically simulate injuries.
Playing a “survivor” is an all-day role, and they must stay for the duration of the drill, which ends at 3 p.m.
Snacks, beverages and pizza for lunch will be provided.
