The Fairfax County Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) was "given a unique opportunity-placing a CERT display and doing extrication demonstration drills at the Capital Home & Garden Show running February 25-28th at the Dulles Expo Center" (CERT PIO).
They expect to see around 35,000 people during the event, as well as media overage. "CERT skill demonstrations every two hours."
What a great opportunity for community outreach? But where are the volunteers?
The only problem is the day before the event ONLY 4 people volunteered for this exhibit. MANY more people are needed to help make this a success.
To sign up, additional information is available on the Fairfax County CERT Blog.
