2011 National Capital Region Full-Scale Exercise

We Need Your Help

The National Capital Region (NCR) is hosting a full scale exercise to test the capabilities of area hospitals in a critical care medical surge event.  Thirteen Maryland hospitals will be using a terrorist attack scenario to exercise their capacity to care for critically injured patients.

In order to evaluate these capabilities, volunteers are needed to play as victims in the exercise. Mock victims will be asked to act out as if they were injured, and may be applied with moulage (application of mock injuries using make-up and latex). Victims will be provided information regarding their ailments, so that the response demanded of the exercise participants can be more realistic.

Exercise Date: October 19

Participation: Volunteers will be asked to participate as mock victims for a full scale emergency exercise. Volunteers will be assessed and transported to an area hospital. After transport to an area hospital, volunteers will be transported back to the volunteer staging area. Before the event, you will be given a complete orientation to the incident site, the type of injury or symptoms you should simulate and what actions are expected of you.
