In October the City of Portland will be taking part in a series of disaster drills known as T4 which is short for TOPOFF 4 which is probably short for something else. Regardless, now is your chance to put your drama chops to the test!
The City needs 600 volunteers to participate in a large scale disaster scenario at Portland International Raceway (PIR) on Tuesday, October 16. There are a number of different roles as disaster victims to fill but viewing the “Towering Inferno” or any other film by Irwin Allen should put you in the right place – motivation-wise. The FBI will be conducting background checks on volunteers who are positioned at the large scale event. But if your past is checkered, no need to panic because according to the news release, “There are opportunities to volunteer at other sites that do not require a background check.” In any case, if you are interested in participating in this large scale disaster play, please con can find out more specifics by contacting June Vining at 503-823-3937 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you prefer more intimate productions, there is good news as well! On October 17 the Police East Precinct will host a T4 shelter-in-place exercise from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. There is a need for about five to seven volunteers who are interested in participating – so these parts are harder to come by and are clearly more prestigious. Have your agent – or someone pretending to be your agent – contact Marsha Palmer at 503-823-0264 or email@example.com.
