ATTIRE: role players/decoys generally dress in casual attire or clothing they would normally fly in and we encourage volunteers to bring some type of carry-on bag to assume the look of a flying passenger. We appreciate a variety of visual profiles for the teams to practice on and welcome those who wish to dress up, dress down, wear suits or just feel like wearing pajamas.
REQUIREMENTS: role playing requires no canine experience but participants must be 18 years of age. The unit is an easy going group and stresses the importance of participants having fun so that all, canine included, are enriched by the experience. Once a volunteer participates, they will not repeat for at least 60-90 days to prevent canine scent discrimination.
PARKING AT HOU: for DECOY parking, drive to the ‘Passenger Pick-up area’ (downstairs) and follow the ‘Commercial Vehicle’ signs. Look for Zone 5 and drive all the way down to the end. Park by the ‘COH/LEO’ vehicle parking only. Once you’ve arrived, please call from your vehicle so we may meet you and place a parking placard in you dash.
