National Center for Medical Readiness

Rufus Smith, M.S.A., Director

Are You Ready to “Play”?

NCMR is continually running readiness exercises. Setting up training scenarios requires "actors," and we're looking for volunteers. You could play a victim for mass triage in a disaster or a terrorist in a hostage situation for law enforcement tactical emergency medicine. We are building a database of volunteers to call on.

Do you want to be a volunteer disaster 'victim'? We'll start in the morning with donuts and make-up. Then it's lights, camera, action! Come be a role model! Send e-mail with your full name, phone number and email address to and give us some idea of when you are available to volunteer.

Thank You!
