Good afternoon,

The City of Philadelphia Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is recruiting volunteers for a mass casualty and mass decontamination exercise to be held on the morning of July 29, 2015. This exercise will test the response of the Philadelphia Police, SEPTA Police, and Philadelphia Fire departments to an intentional release of a chemical agent in a crowded subway station. This exercise is an important component of the City’s preparations for hazardous materials accidents, terrorist incidents, and special events including the World Meeting of Families this September.

Please distribute this volunteer opportunity throughout your network and ask volunteers to submit an interest form here: http://goo.gl/forms/FBZL5HgB4w

Let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for your support.
