The City and Borough of Juneau Emergency Programs Division is looking for 40 enthusiastic volunteers to assist them on Friday, April 12 with a search and rescue exercise.
Anyone — including youth with adult supervision — is welcome. There are opportunities for both indoor and outdoor locations, but more outdoor volunteers are needed.
Volunteers will be staged and hiding in several different areas around Juneau while a search and rescue responder and possibly a dog will be attempting to locate and rescue them. Before the exercise begins, volunteers will be instructed about the role they are being asked to play. It could include mocking an injury or being unconscious.
All volunteers should dress warmly and bring their own drinking water for personal hydration.
Outdoor volunteers should dress for that day’s weather conditions and being outdoors for several hours.
The event will take place Friday, April 12 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Hagevig Regional Fire Training Center, 206 Sherwood Lane.
Individuals interested in participating must contact Michelle Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, April 4 at noon. Spontaneous volunteers will not be utilized.
