After a disaster such as an earthquake, VRC workers register citizens as official emergency volunteers to assist city personnel engaged in disaster response activities.
Emergency Managers will conduct training for volunteer VRC staff on Wednesday, October 23, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Brier City Hall. Citizens with personnel management, human resources, administrative, or logistics experience are preferred, but anyone with enthusiasm and interest is welcome to train for this volunteer opportunity.
Volunteer Reception Centers provide an orderly means to register citizens as volunteer emergency workers following a disaster. “The onset of disaster is not the time to organize a process to manage emergent volunteers. A preplanned facility to screen, identify, and train volunteers is the smart way to quickly register citizens as emergency workers,” said Dan Good, ESCA VRC Program Manager.
The Brier City Hall address is located at 2901 228th St.SW. in Brier.
The Emergency Services Coordinating Agency is a local government emergency management organization created by the cities of Brier, Edmonds, Kenmore, Lake Forest Park, Lynnwood, Mill Creek, Mountlake Terrace, Mukilteo, Woodinville, and the Town of Woodway.
