Fairfax Joint Local Emergency Planning Committee
Produces Shelter in Place Video
The Fairfax Joint Local Emergency Planning Committee has produced a video about shelter in place. The FJLEPC encourages county residents to watch the video with family, friends or co-workers to stimulate conversation and planning should an emergency situation occur that would force a shelter-in-place response.
The video is available through any of the Fairfax County public libraries as well as online through the county’s “video on demand” service at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/cable/channel16/vod.htm.
Homeowners associations and civic groups are encouraged to show the video at meetings and to lend it to their members. FJLEPC members are also available to present a program on sheltering in place.
The video, approximately 10 minutes long, was produced by the Communications Production Division of the Fairfax County Department of Cable Communications and Consumer Protection.
For more information on the shelter-in-place video or the Fairfax Joint Local Emergency Planning Committee, call the FJLEPC at 703-246-4386, TTY 703-385-4419.
