EPLEX 2020 Call for Volunteers and Information Sheet
Event Description: The BWI Marshall Airport and Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) is hosting the 2020 EPLEX Full Scale Exercise on May 2, 2020. EPLEX is designed to test and validate the airport’s ability to respond to an airplane crash. At least 100 actors are being recruited to play the roles of plane crash patients, friends and family seeking information about plane crash victims, and to play the roles of media and “other” interested parties through the exercise sim-cell. Actor’s have the responsibility to make this exercise as realistic as possible by acting out their assigned role. Remember, emergency res ponders are depending on you in order to conduct training. The most important thing about the volunteer program is to have fun. Volunteers will learn about emergency response and how Fire/EMS operations are conducted. Lite breakfast and lunch will be provided for all volunteers.
Once your volunteer registration form is processed, you will receive an email with further directions and exercise waiver forms. Thank you again for your interest in volunteering for the BWI EPLEX!
