When I was in the medical field, I sat on the planning committee for all our disaster drills. We averaged 3-4/yr. and usually recruited people from
civic organizations in the area. This was long before the internet and Craig's list came about so we had to go to the organization, say the Lion's
Club or Chamber of Commerce and give a little talk and sign up volunteers. It would make perfect sense, in this cyberworld, to recruit using some
sort of social media and reducing the time needed to find volunteers.
Just because a base has a lot of personnel, it doesn't mean they can all take a day off to participate in a drill. Families of soldiers have lives
off the base just like civilians have lives outside their jobs.
