CERT 2 members are desperately needed for a Boy Scouts of America Disaster Campo

CERT 2 members are desperately needed for a Boy Scouts of America Disaster Camporee to be held at the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Academy.
Date: Saturday, October 15, 2011

Time: 8:45 am until approximately 5:00 pm



CERT members will guide scouts through training stations (search and rescue, logistics, medical, etc.)
Each scout will earn the Emergency Perparedness merit badge and granduate as a Teen CERT.
The scouts will be staying the night at the Fire and Rescue Academy; you will not.

A pre Camporee CERT briefing/refresher will be held prior to the camporee. Date and time to be announced.

Please, email Dana Powers at dana.powers@fairfaxcounty.gov. and cc: Terry at certainlywecan@gmail.com

If you haven't completed a refresher for the year, this event would satisfy that requirement and keep your qualifications current.



This is a rewarding event and you will get to use and hone your skills while working directly with the scouts. No special skills or train-the-trainer experience is needed. Please help us put on this worthwhile event for the BSA.



Thanks,


Jeff, Steve, and Dana
