The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services is sponsoring a disaster preparedness exercise focused on mass care and sheltering. The scenario is based on a large nuclear explosion in New Jersey that drives people to evacuate into Pennsylvania. We are testing our capabilities for opening state managed shelters at both Penn State University’s Harrisburg campus (Middletown) and Shippensburg University. They are seeking people of all abilities to act as evacuees and go through the registration process at the shelter locations,. The exercise will take place on Tuesday, August 15 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Interested individuals should contact Christine Heyser at firstname.lastname@example.org or 717-461-0389 with the following information: your name, your preference to participate at PSU Harrisburg or Shippensburg, any dietary restrictions for lunch, and optional information about your disability and any special needs you will have.
