community collaboration for disaster resiliencyIn times of disaster, Fairfax County can’t recover without community partners and especially the partnership of Fairfax County houses of worship. Hunter Mill District faith communities, nonprofits, homeowner associations, PTA’s and other groups are invited to come together on the following two dates to receive important information and training.

  • Seminar — Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2017: Explore how local groups can form Community Resiliency Groups (CRG’s) for their community’s recovery after a disaster. The Hunter Mill District’s faith communities will be an integral part of the CRG’s, so please appoint several key members to represent your congregation.
  • Exercise — Thursday, Feb. 9, 2017: The Hunter Mill District community groups and houses of worship will meet again and practice how they will work together in response to a local disaster. This will be a facilitated Table Top Exercise (TTX).

Both events will take place at Heritage Fellowship Church, 2501 Fox Mill Road, in Reston. Each will begin with a free dinner at 6 p.m., followed by the seminar at 6:30 p.m. Ample time will be given for Q&A and discussion during the evening sessions. Both evenings will end at 8:30 p.m.
