Operation Purple Haze


THE BALTIMORE RAVENS NEED YOUR HELPAugust 2, 20089:00am – 2:00pm

The Baltimore Ravens are looking for fans to participate as actors/victims in a full-scale emergency management exercise to help us review the essential elements of emergency preparedness and response at M&T Bank Stadium. The day-long event will start at 9:00 am on Saturday, August 2, 2008 and end at approximately 2:00pm. The Baltimore Ravens, the City of Baltimore, and the State of Maryland are testing response procedures at M&T Bank Stadium, which will serve as a hypothetical site under "attack". Representatives of "first responders" – police, fire, volunteer agencies, stadium officials, and others – will be actively playing in dealing with this type of emergency.

This exercise is important to the safety of the Baltimore Ravens fans and players as the exercise capitalizes, reinforces, and provides feedback to the First Responder Community. It will also help us to develop, sustain, and provide feedback of emergency response operations as this is a great learning opportunity for the responders to examine the unique aspects of responding to a terrorist incident at our stadium.

Free parking will be available in lot B and free food, non-alcoholic beverages and entertainment will be provided to you throughout the day as well as a Raffle Drawing for Prizes. All volunteers will be issued a raffle ticket making them eligible to win great Ravens items plus one large flat screen TV will be raffled off at the conclusion of the exercise.

If you are interested in helping your favorite team, please contact Steve Carlson at 410-230-8021 or Mike Oberst at 410-230-8022.
