EMS District 6 is Seeking Actors (MRC and others) to portray victims in a Full-Scale Exercise @ Vermont Statehouse Lawn in Montpelier

Vermont EMS District 6 is Seeking Actors (MRC and others) to portray victims in a Full-Scale Exercise on Friday, March 6th at the Vermont Statehouse in Montpelier.

More than 15 agencies will respond to a simulated incident to test the capabilities of local public safety agencies to manage a large-scale emergency.

The actors will serve a valuable service to the community by allowing emergency medical service and hospitals to practice treating mass casualties after such an incident. Some of the actors will be made up to simulate injuries and add to the realistic nature of the exercise.

No experience is necessary. Actors must be available from 6 a.m. until 12 p.m. on the day of the exercise. Parking and refreshments will be available. Informational briefings will be held the week prior to the exercise. Actors must be willing to be moulaged, act as if in pain, if applicable, and be willing to ride in an ambulance.

Vermont EMS District 6 covers all of Washington County and part of Orange County. This encompasses over 22 towns and 15 EMS services. District 6 is dedicated to providing the highest possible quality of pre-hospital emergency care, as well as extensive training and continuing education opportunities.

For questions, please contact Sarah Nolin at sarah.nolin@vermont.gov or (802)503-9203.

Time: Friday, March 6th from 6:00 am to 12:00 pm

Location: The Pavilion Building, 109 State Street, Montpelier, VT

COVID-19 Response Volunteer to Help @ Statewide
Mar 23 – Aug 14 all-day
COVID-19 Response Volunteer to Help @ Statewide

Vermont health care providers are working overtime to assure everyone receives the best care during this COVID-19 pandemic.  We need to build our workforce to support our health care workers so they can rest and stay healthy and provide good care to patients.

Vermont’s Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) units are community-based groups of volunteers who supplement public health resources with their existing skills.   The MRC program needs more volunteers to support Vermont’s healthcare system.

Will you answer the call to help?

Currently, there have been some opportunities to assist with packing materials for shipment and assisting testing operations.  There may or may not be other MRC opportunities that arise, as we do not know were COVID-19 is heading — particularly a possible need for healthcare professionals.  

For becoming involved with the MRC, you can sign-up here, https://rms.vermont.gov/, make sure you select the unit in your area, map: http://www.oncallforvt.org/wordpress/map-locator/, upon sign-up, so the corresponding unit coordinator will know to reach out to you.  Sign-up instructions attached, please double check that you select the correct unit.

Other ways to help for COVID-19, may be found by reaching out to your local community groups/organizers like rotary and lion clubs, soup kitchens, and viewing your neighborhood Front Porch Forum group.  Additional volunteer activities can be found here: https://vtdigger.org/2020/03/14/guide-how-you-can-help-volunteer-or-donate-during-the-coronavirus-outbreak/
