Volunteers Needed: CERT Training Class Needs Actors for “Final Act”, April 25

Volunteers are needed for the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) final simulation drill on SATURDAY , April 25, 2015 from noon to 8:00pm at the Peter Kirk Community Center in downtown Kirkland . This is the “final exam” for CERT students to demonstrate their search/rescue and first aid skills.

We need 5 volunteers to set up the facility to make it look like a disaster has occurred. This job will take about an hour and begins at noon.

We also need 24 volunteer "victims”, who are assigned dramatic roles and specific injuries. A professional make-up artist applies moulage make-up and prosthetics to realistically simulate injuries. This is an all-day role. "Victims" are scheduled to arrive between 12:30pm and 2:00pm and are expected to stay for the duration of the drill, which ends at 8:00pm. When you register you will be given a choice of several moulage make-up options. We do our best to honor your preferences, but due to the amount of time it takes to apply full make-up, we can't guarantee that everyone who requests "The Works!" will get it. We also can not guarantee specific injuries. We do guarantee you will have lots of opportunities to demonstrate your acting skills!


Snacks are provided throughout the day, and a pizza dinner accompanies the de-briefing after the drill.

Participants must be 14 years old or older. Students between 14 and 16 years old must be accompanied by a parent. Students between 16 and 18 years old must have a signed consent form from their parents.
