Volunteer Reception Center Exercise 

Friday, March 31st - 123 N. Alfred St.

In a time of disaster, Alexandria’s Office of Emergency Management will notify Volunteer Alexandria to activate a Volunteer Reception Center (VRC), a place where spontaneous volunteers get registered, screened, and deployed to affected disaster areas.  

Volunteer Alexandria will host a Volunteer Reception Center (VRC) tabletop exercise, where it was tested the capability of activating, managing and deactivating a VRC. A number of 12 designated volunteers who have pre-assigned positions, have been trained on their roles and responsibilities.
