Authorities in Prince George's County need volunteers to be evacuees. Not real ones — just for pretend.
On Friday, July 11, Prince George's County will hold an exercise simulating flooding in certain areas of the county, with volunteers needed to play residents in need of evacuation to a shelter, which will be Dr. Henry Wise High School in Upper Marlboro.
Residents if interested must sign up on online by Tuesday July 8.
Those with "movement devices," such as wheelchairs, are in particular encouraged to volunteer to make the experience for first responders more realistic.
Snacks and hot lunches will be provided to those who volunteer. Any county high school student can receive community service hours for participating.
