Unique Volunteer Opportunity: DART tunnel exercise on night of 10/25/2017

Dallas CERT has asked their members to share the news about an exciting exercise TOMORROW night. It’s just about the only way you can hike through the DART subway tunnels around Cityplace without being hit by a train, and it’s fun and worth doing. Some volunteers will get to wear injury makeup!

You DO NOT need to be a CERT member, or even able-bodied, to participate. The organizers are specifically seeking participants with disabilities to help make the event more realistic. Everyone of all ages (minors must be accompanied by an adult) can take part.
