Save the date all regional CERT teams! The #FCFRD Fairfax County CERT Volunteers will be hosting the national Capital Region CERTCon virtually March 9 - 14, 2021.

Being a CERT is not the shirt. It is who you are at all times.

It shows in your instinct to help others without expecting anything in return. In the way you process your surroundings that allows you to quickly adapt to changing situations. In your desire to continually refine your skills and knowledge, as well as your need to grow beyond your comfort zone.

Being a CERT is who you are, not a role you play when needed. And that is what makes you worth celebrating. You, the everyday CERT!
