Congratulations to Our Trained PIO Officer

Terry is now our trained PIO Officer after attending a PIO course through the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) covering everything from interviewing on TV and getting your message out to writing press releases. Thank you for volunteering three days of your life to become better prepared on getting the CERT message out!

Please direct any media inquiries to Terry at pio@fairfaxcountycert.org . Also, he will be looking for volunteer support at a number of outreach events through 2008. Please consider helping out!!


  1. Congrats Terry--You put many hours into this program and help us all by promoting emergency preparedness to the community. Thank you!

  2. Congratulations!!! Tradition is that newly promoted folks have to pay for drinks at the next gathering at the waterhole. ;-)

  3. David,
    Your'e absolutely right! First round of drinks are on ME!
    I'll do this on first night of county CERT training March 26th. Let's do it at Coastal Flats!
