This past Saturday, March 21, 2015, Fairfax County CERT members joined AmeriCorps volunteers to participate in a community canvassing event held by the Fairfax County Office of Emergency Management and Volunteer Fairfax.
The package of preparedness materials given to residents.
This event was a great opportunity to do outreach in our community. For future events, OEM will continue to reach out to CERT, including the recently established Local CERT teams, to help spread the preparedness message to their communities.
