Project Description

When disaster strikes, first responders such as fire fighters, police officers and medical staff are on the job. But what happens when the dust settles and the clean-up begins? Then it becomes the responsibility of dedicated volunteers to clear debris, distribute water and hand out blankets. Community members are needed to help coordinate these spontaneous volunteers. These coordinating individuals comprise the Volunteer Emergency Team (VET), a group of people who assist in an emergency by organizing and deploying volunteers to agencies through a Volunteer Reception Center (VRC) in Fairfax County.

The Volunteer Emergency Team are not first responders. They are volunteers who have made themselves available to be called on in the event they are needed for the county's response and recovery effort.

Team members will receive training in disaster, emergency and volunteer management.
