County seeks volunteer ‘actors’ for emergency exercise

-A A +A

Los Alamos County will be conducting a county-wide active shooter exercise May 18 at the University of New Mexico–Los Alamos campus. The campus will be closed for the exercise, which is being conducted in order to test and improve the county’s overall preparedness in responding to an active shooter event.

The county is seeking at least 30 volunteers to participate as “actors” in the exercise.

Exercise activity will last about seven hours starting at 8 a.m.  

Volunteers will need to arrive at UNM-LA, Building 2 by 7 a.m. in order to be registered and properly briefed. Breakfast and lunch will be provided free.

Volunteer actor/victims will be provided with symptomology cards (simulating injuries) and moulage t-shirts or other moulage materials to enhance the realism of injuries associated with an active shooter event.

Volunteers will be at various locations throughout the exercise areas on the campus. All volunteers must be 18 years of age or older and must sign participation waivers and other necessary forms.

Those intersted should send their first and last name and a contact phone number and email address to lacmanager@lacnm.us. In the email, use “Volunteer for Active Shooter Exercise” in the subject line.
