We will also be responsible for starting and maintaining the several light towers and Message Boards scattered throughout the Campus.
We recognize that this is a long duration event but would appreciate what ever time you can give us. It is suggested that if a specific Team could do a Day or Shift or two that would work best. If you have mobility issues we can put you where you are not on your feet (Volunteer Registration Booth, Command Post etc) or bring a lawn chair.
