Objective of the CRG

The Community Resiliency Group (CRG) program represents a coordinated effort, initiated by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and led by the Office of Emergency Management (OEM), to network county resources, community volunteer organizations, and business groups throughout the County to improve preparedness and resilience, and to ensure that post-disaster recovery happens as quickly and completely as possible.  Our objectives are as follows:

  1. To build neighbor to neighbor connections with organizations from all sectors.
  2. To withstand the shocks and stresses of disaster.
  3. To help the community recover from emergencies and restore normal functions.

Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT)

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area. CERT trains county residents in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.
