Fairfax County CERT has been asked to provide static CERT displays/booths at community NNO events the evening of August 2nd (Tuesday) 6:00 - 9:00pm
(Middleridge, Kings Park and possibly Burke).
We will also have "ride-alongs" with several District Police stations that visit several communities throughout the evening with McRuff and several police vehicles.
These are all great opportunities to show CERT capabilities to the community associations, neighborhood watch, and build a relationship with the FCPD personnel.
Please contact Steve, our new operational role event coordinator at RiStph@aol.com ,or James (OUTREACH coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in participating as a ride-along or at a venue in your area. From past experience this is a great evening to mix with the citizens on their turf and talk up the capabilities of the CERT program here in Fairfax County.
