People can use an emergency that they think is likely to occur for them, or they may select an example emergency from a list provided by The Arc of Northern Virginia. Each person who signs up will be randomly assigned a 10-minute block of time to call between 10am and 1pm. They can work through the scenario with the call operator and ask any questions they have. This event will take place remotely. People who sign up will be given a number to call at their assigned time.
