I’m not a doctor, but I play one on TV.

How many times have we heard THIS line? How about: I’m not a victim of a plane crash, but I played one in Walla Walla.

Officials looking for people to play an important role in a major training exercise

Walla Walla County Emergency Services (WWCEMS) is hosting a major training event on May 12 at Walla Walla Regional Airport, and they need you to play a role.

The Mass Casualty Training Event is a major and important exercise where rescue and medical teams in our region will “train” for the unthinkable—an event resulting in serious injury and havoc involving numerous people.

Who is needed?

Volunteers are needed to play both the role of accident victim and that of worried and upset family and friends. WWCEMS seeks to make this as realistic as possible, and that’s where you can help.

No acting experience is necessary, just a desire to help provide assistance and follow instructions. for more information on how you can be a part, send an e-mail to this address:

From WWCEMS:

“All volunteers will be registered under the WA State Emergency Worker program. Background checks are conducted as part of the registration process.

The exercise starts at 6 p.m. Volunteers should arrive at 4:30 p.m. For more information, please email [email protected] Please include your phone number if you would like us to call you.”

It’s an important event, consider helping out.
