HAGERSTOWN, MD (February 25, 2020) – Hagerstown Regional Airport is seeking volunteers for a full-scale simulated aircraft emergency disaster exercise at the airport on Saturday, April 18, 2020, 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Volunteers are needed to assist in role-playing as injured passengers.
Volunteers are crucial in testing the responsiveness of HGR’s emergency agencies. The exercise allows the airport and Washington County Division of Emergency Services to effectively test their emergency action plans. During the exercise, volunteers will interact with the County’s first responders, including Fire & Rescue, Meritus Health, and several support organizations. Hagerstown Regional Airport conducts a full-scale simulated emergency drill once every 3 years.
Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and no prior experience is necessary. Clothes may be damaged during the drill, please dress accordingly. Snacks and refreshments will be provided. To volunteer, please complete registration by clicking on the Tickets button.
