The City of Phoenix believes that being prepared for disasters and ensuring the well-being of its community in emergencies is critical. To better prepare for disasters, the City is putting on a functional exercise. This is an opportunity to practice our ability to establish and maintain a shelter and care for displaced individuals during an emergency.
We need your help!
To practice a sheltering scenario, we need volunteers who will participate as a volunteer actor in our exercise. As a volunteer actor, you will role play being yourself as an evacuated person who needs to come into a shelter.
We invite you to come out on 3 May 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Participating in an exercise can be a fun and educational experience. Your participation will add realism to the exercise, assist the City to practice its emergency plans, and will allow you to be a part of the Citys efforts to practice and improve preparedness and response processes.
A key part of the exercise is to practice the Citys processes and procedures for ensuring people with disabilities are provided equal access to facilities, programs, services, and activities in an emergency shelter setting. We want to be sure that exercises include the whole community, so we especially welcome individuals with disabilities and other community members who may need additional assistance in an emergency.
If you are interested in participating in this interactive opportunity, you will need to contact Jui Chiu at (602) 495-0513 or firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
