Would you like to help those who will help you in an Emergency?
The Sierra Madre Fire Department will be hosting a joint training session with the Sierra Madre Search and Rescue Team on Saturday, August 13, 2011, from 8am to 12 noon. This training will simulate a large scale incident that may result in mass civilian casualties. This training will allow the Sierra Madre Fire Department, and the Sierra Madre Search and Rescue Team to better prepare for major incidents such as; earthquakes, wildfires, and other unforeseeable incidents they may have to respond too – to protect the lives of those who live and work in our community.
The Sierra Madre Fire Department, and the Sierra Madre Search and Rescue Team would like to ask for some volunteer help with this training exercise. We would like to have 50 to 100 volunteers of any age to help with this training (children may assist if accompanied by an adult). You would be participating as an "actor" simulating injury requiring evacuation, and or medical assistance. Lunch will be provided to all who attend this training exercise. If you would like to have some fun – and at the same time help your local emergency services agencies prepare to "help you" if necessary during a major incident; please attend one of the information meetings to be held at the Sierra Madre Fire Department, located at 242 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., Sierra Madre, CA 91024.
