Volunteers are needed on August 11 for a citywide emergency drill.
Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) is participating, along with police, fire, emergency medical services, and other community agencies, in a citywide drill regarding emergency procedures to be held in Minneapolis on August 11, 2010 from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm. They need volunteers to fill the roles of parents and students. Volunteers do not have to be residents of Minneapolis, nor do they have to be employees of MPS, although MPS employees are encouraged to volunteer.
High school students
We need a significant number of 16 to 19 year old volunteers to play the roles of high school students. Younger volunteers will not be accepted; high school graduates will be. They need to be available all day on August 11. We need a great many young people; if you are in touch with scouting, theater, church or other community groups that involve a number of older teenagers, you may share this request with them.
We need a significant number of people to play the roles of parents of high school students. Teenagers are encouraged to come with their parents to help with the realty of the training.
If you are available on August 11th and are interested in participating, please contact exercise director Jonathan Bundt (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please include your contact information, referral source and which role you think would be appropriate for you.
