Community Resilience Pilot Program Exercise Wednesday Night in Mason District

Posted at 12:30 p.m.

Community Collaboration for Community ResiliencyEarlier this year a community resilience seminar was held in Annandale, part of a pilot program funded through a UASI grant to Volunteer Fairfax to host an educational seminar and practice exercise in the Mason, Braddock and Sully Districts. These events are opportunities for local community partners to meet and better understand how we can best work together in response to a disaster.

The Mason District seminar was held in October; the accompanying exercise will be held tomorrow, Wednesday, Dec. 3, from 5-8 p.m. at the Heritage Center, conference rooms C & D,  7611 Little River Turnpike, Annandale.

Leaders and decision-makers of area community-based organizations, nonprofits, faith-based groups, homeowners associations and PTAs should attend. The event is free and dinner is even included!

In times of disaster, it will take everyone to ensure the full recovery of the community. If you can, plan on attending tomorrow’s table-top exercise and practice what was learned during the October seminar.

If you would like to attend or need more information on the exercise — or upcoming seminars/exercises in the Braddock and Sully Districts — contact Tracy Friend with Volunteer Fairfax.
