Delco's Notification System
If you haven't yet, please consider signing up Delaware County ReadyNotifyPA to get emergency notifications that affect the County. Today they've sent out an announcement requesting volunteers for emergency disaster exercise.  This notification systems was invaluable during Hurricane Sandy.

A mass care sheltering exercise will take place on Saturday March 2, 2013. We will be conducting this exercise without the ability to communicate by cellular phone or texting. Local volunteers, unaffiliated volunteers, and regional volunteers who wish to participate as clients of the shelter will be asked to meet at the Darby Community Center, 1020 Ridge Ave in Darby, PA 19013 between 09:45 am and 11:00 am on Saturday March 2, 2013.  

They will register as exercise clients and then be given further instructions.  They exercise will conclude by 2 pm.  All volunteers participating as clients should be prepared to act out roles as they are assigned and rotate through the shelter to be accepted as a new client.  Lunch will be provided by the American Red Cross, Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter. Pre-registration is required.
