August 21, CERT steering committee meeting and Aug 19 training exercise

Please join us for the monthly CERT Steering Committee meeting on Tuesday, August 21, 2012 at 7:00pm. The meeting will be held at The Fairfax County Government Center, located at 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax. The meeting room number will be on the monitor in the lobby. This meeting is open and all CERTs are invited to attend.

Fairfax CERT has been invited to participate in a training exercise this Sunday, August 19, 2012 in Linthicum, MD, 8am-3pm. The exercise is hosted by DELMARVA Search and Rescue and Prince George's County Council of CERT SAR team.

The CERTEX is an exciting and hands on exercise that takes place at The Rubble Pile (similar to the one located at Lorton). The scene is realistic with boats, buses, and trailers that look as if a tornado has swept through. Come join us and practice your skills in a very realistic environment.

We have just a few openings left for Fairfax CERTs. If you would like more information or would like to register, please email Missy Tuttle-Ferrio at
