so it has finally happened. an actual pandemic has reached my little area of the world. Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, Amnesty International, various government organizations and other entities have been trying to contain the outbreak. however, the virus is still spreading.
a vaccination has already been created. however, fear-mongering by certain government officials and major news outlets have worsened the crisis in a number of ways. the roads are filled with cars attempting to flee; crashes and accidents have completely clogged up all traffic. landline phone switchboards and cell phone towers have been overloaded to the point that most messages are not getting out. some people are beginning to loot and steal.
transportation and information flow have been effectively frozen. what now?
enter the Hazmat Parkour Corps.
the local groups of parkour traceurs, including myself, have been training in first aid and hazmat techniques. we come from all walks of life, each bringing a unique collection of skills and knowledge. we will act as both messenger and parcel carrier for the various aid organizations that are mostly unable to enter the city. using unconventional routes typical of the traceur, we can avoid the confusion on the streets and carry necessary supplies and information to the people that need it the most.
we will act as messengers for all types of communication: aid group to aid group, aid groups to local citizens and local citizens to local citizens. we will be carrying first aid kits, specialized virus supplies, vaccinations and all other equipment. we will also be building setting up temporary centers in inaccessible parts of the city for the various aid groups, and then run them until the specialists are able to make it through.
each HPC member will be wearing specially prepared form-fitting hazmat clothing. we will also be carrying special informational fliers in several different languages, to pass out as we traverse the city. we have trained in morse code, and will be using our laser pointers to communicate with each other.
each member is completely aware of the plethora of dangers that await them, but put all fears aside in light of an absolutely necessary job.
