Kirby Felts

Kirby Felts is the Emergency Management Coordinator for Charlottesville-Albemarle-UVA and joins Les Sinclair to talk about the need for volunteers for an exercise at the airport. The Office of Emergency Management for Charlottesville, UVA and Albemarle County is looking for volunteers to play the ‘victims’ of an airplane accident. This is a great opportunity for you to be a part of a local disaster exercise and to see how we work together to protect our community. 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. Volunteers should know that they will be outside most of the time for this exercise and can expect typical September weather. There will be a safety officer on site and all volunteers will have access to water. Lunch will be served after the exercise.
