Talk about emergency preparedness during this year's Neighborhood Day. Join VEST and MRC as we 

take the information door to door to residents from the Nauck Community.

Participate in this exciting community event. Come out wearing your most

comfortable shoes and hit the streets of Nauck!

After a brief Orientation we will strategically assign groups to specific streets where you and your group members will distribute emergency preparedness material. The information will include, tips on creating emergency plans, where to access information during a disaster, ways to get involved, and have you had a flu shot this year?

After each group is done canvassing, we'll meet back at the Nauck Community Center for snacks and a quick debrief! 

No prior training is required. All volunteers are welcome to participate in this experience and learn more about emergency preparedness. Please encourage your friends and family to participate with you!

Volunteer Emergency Support Team (VEST) volunteers assist with managing spontaneous, unaffiliated volunteers by connecting them to community agencies in need during an emergency.

As part of Volunteer Arlington and a member of Arlington County's Citizen Corps, VEST volunteers directly support the work of Arlington's Emergency Support Function 17: Volunteer & Donations Management.

Train, learn, and apply your knowledge of emergency preparedness. Join VEST and learn how to help coordinate recovery efforts, share information between government and relief agencies, mobilize resources, and rehabilitate devastated communities. Gain skills through exercises, training, and/or assisting members of the community become prepared for disasters.
