During the afternoon of Wednesday October 4th, 2023, Victoria Village Manor Long Term Care will be running a large-scale mock evacuation. The staff will be evacuating volunteer “Residents” from each of the four resident home areas in order for the staff to practice a large-scale evacuation. *We are looking for volunteers to step in as residents during the drill. These volunteers will be escorted by staff down the stairs either walking, in an evacuation chair, or via the evacuation sled. Once down the stairs volunteers will then be taken to the mock triage room in the Bob Morton Centre. *We are also looking for volunteers to observe the drill and provide feedback. There will be training before the drill, and debriefing will take place afterwards It is estimated that the whole process will take 4 hours during the afternoon.
