Posted on Monday September 25, 2017

On November 24, 2017, the Municipality of Trent Hills and Corporation of Northumberland County will be conducting a full field mock emergency management exercise. We are seeking volunteers to act the roles of victims of a natural disaster for the following scenarios in the town of Campbellford: 

  • Mock residents evacuated from a retirement residence to an emergency shelter in Campbellford
  • Mock residents with pets evacuated to an emergency shelter in Campbellford
  • Mock residents with various profiles to attend the emergency shelter in Campbellford 

Participants will need to be prepared for the activities of the day:

  • Tentative time commitment from 8.00 am to 4.00pm
  • Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
  • Dress for the weather. Some activities will be outdoors, rain or shine.
  • Participants will be given a small script profile to be portrayed as real as possible.
  • No one will be required to complete a role they are not comfortable with.
  • Photographs will be taken during the event.
  • Waivers of liability and photography will be required to be signed.
  • Information such as gender, age category, requirements, and special service is required to help us closely match the person to the requirements of the role.
  • Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. 

A Public Information Session regarding this exercise will take place at 6.30pm on October 12th at the Cultural Clock Tower, 36 Front Street, Campbellford. Participant registration forms will be available.
