The Office of Emergency Management for Charlottesville, UVA and Albemarle County is looking for volunteers to play the ‘victims’ of an airplane accident. The exercise will be Saturday, September 20, 2014 at the Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport.  Volunteers are needed from 7:30 a.m. until approximately 2:00 p.m. with lunch afterward. Volunteers should know that they will be outside most of the time and should dress for typical September weather.  Organizers call it a great opportunity to be a part of a local disaster exercise and to see how we work together to protect the Charlottesville community. You must register to receive additional information and the required liability release form that must be signed in order to participate. If interested, please register online using this link:
