A private firm contracted by the U.S. National Guard has posted an ad on Craigslist seeking “role players” to pose as victims to be rescued as part of an emergency preparedness drill to take place in Govalle, Texas, later this month.
“Role Player’s (sic) Needed,” is the title of the ad, posted five days ago on the local Craigslist for Austin.
The ad is soliciting online applicants for a total of 60 paid “role players” to participate in a four day U.S. National Guard Training Exercise for Emergency Preparedness slated to begin April 22 in Govalle.
Only ten “role players” are needed for the final day of the drill. The pay is $10.10 per hour.
