Haitian Response


Moments after Tuesday's devastating earthquake in Haiti, our Fairfax County CERT members started inquiring how they could be of assistance. Shortly thereafter, Virginia Task Force 1 (VATF-1) the urban search and rescue team, was activated and is on the ground helping the people of Haiti now. First, we can keep in our thoughts, that VATF-1's mission is successful and safe. Second, we can help support one of the many agency's that specialize in disaster relief. The needs are great for basic food, water, shelter and medical supplies. One such organization that is already a presence in Haiti is the American Red Cross. To help those efforts, consider a donation using the link provided below. Know that what you do makes a difference. http://american.redcross.org/HaitiRelief
