CERT Volunteer Recognition - Don't Be Shy!

First, I want to wish everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year. To start off the new year strong, I wanted to take the time to recognize some of our volunteers. From training to public awareness to community outreach to public safety to student programs to ...

The 16th Annual Fairfax County Volunteer Service Awards will be held on Thursday, April 24, 2008. I would like to personally nominate EVERY one of our CERT volunteers who qualify for the Benchmark Award.

The Benchmark Award is a noncompetitive category and all nominees receive a complimentary invitation and recognition at the event.

Adult nominees should be an individual who has given at least 250 or 500 hours of service to a particular agency in calendar year 2007. Youth who have completed at least 100 hours of volunteer service will be honored at the event.

Additional information about the awards can be found at

Included on the website is a Benchmark nomination form. If you can please provide the basic information, I can work with you to ensure that I have all the other necessary information.

This is a simple way to recognize our volunteers who put in quite a few hours in 2007.

PLEASE GET ME THE INFORMATION for those that reached the minimum number of hours by JANUARY 31, so I have time to complete the nomination packet.

Stay Safe!

Andrew S. Levy, Volunteer
Fairfax County Citizen Corps Council, Chairman
