Description of Morning Workshops
CRG Seminar – Abbreviated
Presented by Volunteer Fairfax
So what is a CRG anyway? This introductory workshop is great for those new to the idea of a Community Resiliency Group, or maybe need a refresher. We will use the same abbreviated Seminar as was presented in the nine Districts over the last few years.
The Fairfax County Community Resilience Groups bring together faith communities, safety net nonprofits, civic associations, and private businesses collaborating to provide disaster recovery resources and capabilities in partnership with local government. Working collectively to leverage the available resources, these groups will allow each community, and therefore the county as a whole, to recover rapidly and effectively after an emergency.

How to Develop an Action Plan that Fits
Presented by the Fairfax County Office of Emergency Management
Preparing for crisis situations and responding appropriately to them if they occur can make all the difference. There are two sides to managing any crisis: planning and response. Organizations that anticipate the possibility of a crisis and prepare properly will be better equipped to manage such situations or avoid them altogether. And it isn’t just what you do to support your organization and your staff—as a community organization with connections to congregates, homeowners, clients, volunteers, and neighbors, you are in a unique opportunity to be a resource yourself. But what can you do to help in a disaster or emergency? And how do you position your organization to be that resource? This workshop will take you through the smart steps to make that happen and walk away with the makings of an action plan.

Plan, Prepare, Protect
Presented by the Faith Communities in Action
Emergencies can happen at any time, with little to no warning. Depending on the type of emergency you may need to stay in your home, also known as sheltering in place, or evacuate. Emergency responders may not be able to get to you immediately, and you may be on your own for food and water for some time. During an emergency you may be concerned for your safety as well as the safety of loved ones.

The best time to prepare for a disaster is before one hits. Preparing before an emergency takes the guess work out of survival. Immediately after an emergency, items like water and batteries may be hard to find. The electricity may be off for an extended period of time. Or, you may have to leave your home quickly.

This workshop takes you through the three steps to keep you and your loved ones safe when disaster strikes.

Introduction to Public Safety
Facilitated by the Fairfax County Office of Emergency Management
Active shooter incidents are often unpredictable and evolve quickly. In the midst of the chaos, anyone can play an integral role in mitigating the impacts of an active shooter incident. This awareness level training provides the citizen with the basic steps to survive an active shooter and/or active violence situation. The training utilizes the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Fairfax County Police Department model of Run, Hide, Fight when encountering active violence within the workplace or community. Focus is placed on How to Respond when an active shooter is in your vicinity (1. Evacuate – Run, 2. Hide Out, 3. Take Action – Fight), What to do when law enforcement arrives and information you should provide to law enforcement or the 911 operator, coping, profiling and characteristics of an active shooter/active violence situation.
