Volunteers Needed for Emergency Preparedness Exercise To Be Conducted by Village of Sleepy Hollow and Phelps Hospital
Story Number is : 070917100
Phelps Hospital

With all that is happening in the world today, it is imperative that our community emergency services be prepared to promptly and effectively respond to any event that may occur locally. This summer, the public safety departments of the Village of Sleepy Hollow, in conjunction with Phelps Hospital, will be conducting an emergency preparedness/emergency response exercise. This exercise will test the ability of the police, fire and EMS providers in the village, with assistance from other involved agencies, to respond to an emergency event – managing the crisis, providing care to patients, and transporting them to Phelps Hospital for follow-up care.

To better simulate an actual emergency event, the exercise planners are seeking volunteers from the community to play roles in this exercise. Volunteers are needed to serve as simulated victims, concerned family members, community residents and news reporters.

The exercise will take place on Wednesday, August 30, beginning at approximately 8:00 am and concluding with a complimentary lunch at about noon.

Volunteers will attend a briefing in Sleepy Hollow a week prior to the exercise, on the evening of Wednesday, August 23. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old, unless accompanied by a parent or other responsible adult throughout the exercise, in which case they must be at least 13.

Anyone who is interested in participating in this worthwhile effort to maintain and improve the preparedness of our community to manage crisis is asked to call (914) 366-3698 or email
