Role-players needed for emergency training exercise at Camp Roberts 

Training exercise will be April 22-25camp-roberts-1

Camp Roberts will be hosting a National Guard training exercise for emergency preparedness. IIF Data Solutions is seeking individuals interested in serving as role-players (disaster victims, mass casualties, anxious citizens, etc.) in support of the training exercise. This exercise will occur 22-25 April, in Camp Roberts, located in San Miguel, California.

Quality role-players are essential in adding realism to the scenario by simulating victims of a disaster event and thus enabling the National Guard to test, train and evaluate their life-saving tasks including extraction from a disaster site, victim decontamination, medical triage and treatment. They are seeking realistic diversity in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, and race. As a role-player you must be willing to act, have moulage (artificial but lifelike scrapes, burns, cuts, etc…) applied, be rescued from collapsed structures, be decontaminated of hazardous materials, triaged and provided with advanced medical treatment; all realistically simulated in a safe and controlled environment.

They are seeking a larger number of role players than in previous years. They will need 90 on the 23rd, 90 on the 24th, and 155 role players on the 25th.

All participants will be paid $14.37 an hour, with additional hours required based on role-player assignment. Participants will be required to wear old “cut-away” clothing, with tight fitting swimming suits underneath, for realistic moulage application and for first responders who may “cut-away” clothing to apply immediate medical aid. All participants must be 18 years of age or older.

In order to participate however you will need to apply online by clicking here.

Orientation will be on April 22, from 1 – 5 p.m. at Parish Hall, located at 795 SLO Monterey Rd. in San Miguel.

All applicants must be available: April 22, 2016 for orientation and training. April 23-25, 2016 for exercise participation. More specific information on times and locations will be provided to selected applicants.
