FY 2010 Community Budget Meetings Schedule

Hi folks,
Here is an ideal chance to let the district supervisors know what you think about CERT and the proposed budget cut. Below is a listing of upcoming meetings regarding the FY 2010 county budget.

Why is this important? Here is the "Cliff Notes" synopsis for you- The county wants to cut the Management Analyst 2 position/CERT administrators' position out of the fire department budget. Doing this will damage our CERT program in the process.

In times like these, every SINGLE CERT voice is important....

We are over 500 strong; over 500 amazing, caring individuals who have taken a personal stand-NO we won't be hapless, helpless victims in a major disaster.We have made the commitment-we want to HELP ourselves and others! We are individuals, yet united in a heartfelt desire to help protect our families and communities.

In a county with 1.3 million citizens, 500 members isn't enough. We need more CERTs; we need the opportunity to train more CERTs, and we need continued support on the administrative side to train them effectively.

Lets continue the fight, to keep Fairfax County CERT alive, intact,and prospering- for the sake of our families and our communities.
If you get a chance, go to a meeting and tell our elected leaders exactly what you think.
