Community Service

Welcome to the Orlando Camera Club Community Services information page.  The Orlando Camera Club believes in giving back to the community by donating its time and talents to non/not for profit organizations in need of photography services.

Please note that submitting a request is not a guarantee of provision of services, however, we will do our best to provide any help we can depending on the availability of volunteers as well as other prior/competing commitments. Requests should be submitted at least 30 days in advance of the event.

2024 emergency Drill

2024 Multi County Exercise

Once again the OCC was able to participate in the annual Multi County Emergency Drill.

Thanks to Dana Hutchinson, Chris Harris, Arch Boothe, Gina Dietrich, Jo Fox, and Mark Politt for taking their time to document this event and make an important difference in the readiness of our emergency services.

For those who are not familiar with the drill, it is a mock mass casualty drill that involves multiple hospital systems in multiple counties.  Volunteers are given a scenario to act out and are in Moulage makeup.  Staff has to set up for the emergency and participate as if it were a real situation.  We participate by taking photos of how things are progressing throughout the drill to document things that are done well and where things might need to be tweaked to ensure the system is ready in the event of such a situation.  These drills make a huge difference in responses to situations such as the Pulse shooting years ago.  Hopefully, the system will never have to be activated again for this type of situation but it is good to know they are there and ready.
