WHAT DOES A CASUALTY ROLE PLAYER (CRP) DO?
HDS CRPs and Actors will assist by providing realistic training aimed at purposefully strengthening security and resilience through systematic preparation for threats that pose the greatest risk to the security of the nation.
CRPs will provide realism for Emergency responders who will exercise search and rescue, medical trauma treatment, and first aid application in order to expand and strengthen communication, coordination, and integration. This is why CRPs will be moulaged (application of injury makeup and fake blood) to portray various physical and emotional injuries and conditions before going through simulated medical triage and decontamination processes multiple times during the exercise.
HDS seeks diversity among our CRPs, including gender, ethnicity, age, body types, disabilities, and foreign language abilities. Participants fluent in American Sign Language are also desired. Priority will be given to those with previous experience with role-playing, acting, military, and/or first responder/disaster response experience. Those who have participated in past disaster preparedness exercises have found it especially rewarding because you get to support an important community service that saves lives and protects the citizens of your state while getting paid to have FUN while doing so.
ELIGIBILITY: There is no security clearance requirement, so it is open to all, but criminal background checks and U.S. employment eligibility checks will be accomplished.
All personnel must have appropriate IDs and be without a criminal background. All IDs are scanned by security personnel, and persons with felony convictions will not be allowed to participate.
Also, due to a potentially strenuous decontamination process and varying outside temperatures, CRPs should not have life-threatening or serious medical conditions.
