Working together for a resilient Birmingham.

Volunteers required for emergency exercise

St John Ambulance are requesting volunteers to play the part of injured and uninjured survivors of a simulated emergency incident to be held on Saturday 20th February 2010.

The emergency exercise will test the emergency services response to a large scale incident and is essential in assisting with the training of organisations and individuals should a similar emergency occur.

The exercise will take place in Smethwick and volunteers would need to be available from 1pm until 5pm.  Some volunteers will be given simulated injuries and everyone will be given full instructions.

A certificate of appreciation will be issued and an out of pocket re-imbursement of £5 per person to cover volunteer costs will be made on the day.

If you are interested, you can view further information and download the registration form.   If you have any questions you can e-mail emergency-planning@wmids.sja.org.uk
