Outreach Training seminar, two dates 11 April, then 18 April

Fairfax County CERT is expanding the Outreach effort. Outreach plays an important part in filling our CERT Basic and CERT 2 classes along with educating the public in emergency preparedness. We are looking for outgoing dedicated people to share the CERT message of preparedness and training.

As the weather gets nicer, we have some big annual events coming up; the plain true is that we need you! Also, more and more businesses, homeowner and faith-based organizations have been requesting us to come out and talk CERT.

We are having an Outreach training seminar you can attend to give you the tools and confidence. Two classes have been scheduled for April 11th then again on April 18th. Both classes will be held at the Government Center, conference room 7 at 7 pm. You will only need to attend one of the dates. Please, email me at with your name, CERT class number and contact info. We will be serving refreshments, so please let me know if you are attending. Thanks!
