Urgent request - 4-H Fair Outreach Event 6-7 Aug

We haven't received but three responses to the June 29th announcement.
We are in desparate need of volunteer to staff the CERT Outreach display and booth. \

This is a two-day event: SAT 9am -9 pm, and SUN 9am - 5 pm. We should have at least a two-person CERT representation during the core hours (11am - 3pm) each day.This is an outdoor event (under a canopy) near the stage area - expecting over 13,000 visitors.We have been given a prime location!

The 63rd Annual 4-H Fair and the Frying Pan Park Farm Show has requested CERT program participation as a special County program exhibitor.

We have not been asked to provide any 'operational support.' We will, however, be prepared to provide 'first aid' and demonstrate some CERT field medical treatment if the opportunity arises.

This community outreach event is very important and will provide high exposure of the CERT program and emergency preparedness to another segment of the community.

We will be emphasizing September as Emergency Preparedness Month.

Contact James, Outreach Coordinator and Event IC at 703-978-2035 or 703-887-1421 (c) as soon as possible.
