CEPC Committee Roles

Purpose

The Community Emergency Preparedness Committee was established to support and help coordinate collaborative town-wide efforts to prepare residents to respond to emergencies of all kinds. The general focus of the Committee is on tangible, practical, cost-effective actions regarding emergency preparedness that can be implemented at the local level.

Roles

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

CERT is a national program. After a major disaster, first responders will be overwhelmed. The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training is a national program supported by FEMA that teaches you how to take care of yourself and your family and help your community until first responders can assist.

Firewise

Neighbors helping neighbors–this is what Firewise is all about. Residents join as a Firewise site and take action to prepare themselves, their homes, and their properties against the threat of wildfire. They look out for one another and provide those in need of assistance with help in emergency preparation.

Age-Friendly Fairfax

Age Friendly Fairfax is dedicated to supporting age-friendly initiatives for our residents. They offer in-person and online free to low-cost recreation classes, forums, events, and more.

Neighborhood Response Group

The Neighborhood Response Group program is comprised of volunteers who help connect with and support their neighbors before, during, and after disasters. The program continues to grow in Fairfax because of residents’ dedication, vision, and contribution.

Community At Large

The Community At Large members represent the voice and perspective of the general Fairfax Community.
