Volunteers “Step” Up for Preparedness
Posted at 1 p.m.
Volunteers from Volunteer Fairfax, RSVP-Northern Virginia (Retired Seniors Volunteer Program) and the AmeriCorps NCCC got together this past Saturday to help our emergency management office to get prepared for school.
STEP is an emergency preparedness education project developed by FEMA and the American Red Cross and in 2008 was piloted in six New England states. The program provides students strategies and information for dealing with various types of emergencies, and encourages the students to share this with family members.
