CASUALTY ROLE-PLAYING 101
- The main job of a Role Player (CRP) is to act out particular roles that you will be assigned. The more realistic you are in supporting your roles through your emotions, preparedness, and mental rehearsals, the more effective you will be in supporting this Disaster Response exercise.
- When assigned a specific role, be sure you understand the expectations before going into the role, and then STAY IN THAT ROLE UNTIL COMPLETION.
- Vividly portray your specific assigned role through your emotions and actions; ask if you don’t understand.
- Be Emotional/Realistic/Loud—DO NOT MAKE PHYSICAL CONTACT WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT OR MILITARY MEMBERS.
- Use appropriate responses for particular circumstances; CRP Coordinators will provide specific guidance.
- Never get physical with the military/responders even in the role. Tone down your actions based on the circumstances, and adjust when necessary.
- Once the responders address your mental anguish, you can become calmer.
- Be convincing; use your personal experiences, personality, and emotions to better act out that particular role
- KNOW YOUR SAFEWORD: “REAL-WORLD.” By saying this word, the National Guardsmen and/or police will stop what they are doing and readjust based on the safeword; i.e.: “REAL-WORLD”– if you feel faint or dizzy; “REAL-WORLD”– if you are being hurt in any way or handled inappropriately.
- NEVER GET INTO AN ARGUMENT WITH THE CLIENT–If there is an issue or disagreement, finish your role and inform the RP Managers immediately.
