Virginia Citizen Corps Regional Meetings Scheduled

(Posted from the VDEM Update: March 24, 2010)
Virginia Citizen Corps volunteers from all five programs (Fire Corps, Volunteers in Police Service, Neighborhood Watch, Community Emergency Response Team, Medical Reserve Corps) are invited to attend one of seven regional meetings scheduled for this spring.

Amy Ettinger, Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, will share important opportunities for volunteers at state-managed pet shelters. Winners of the 2009 Virginia Citizen Corps Superstar awards will be announced, as well as the FEMA Region III recognition of Virginia’s participation in National Preparedness Month 2009.

In addition, VCC encourages volunteers to invite community partners to the meetings, such as Virginia Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters, the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, schools and universities, fire, law enforcement and EMS departments, emergency managers, and faith-based organizations.
