Be Prepared in 2007 Calendar Project

A recent Civil Grand Jury report found that the single most significant barrier to residents becoming more prepared for disasters is the lack of awareness and consequently the need for constant reminders about the importance of being prepared. As a means to raise awareness, the Fairfax Citizens’ Disaster Council is working to prepare a 2007 wall calendar with a disaster preparedness message for each month, specifically geared to Fairfax residents and businesses. Ideally, if we can raise enough money, we would like to mail a calendar to each household and business in Fairfax later this year. If you or your business would like to contribute to the printing and mailing of the calendar, please contact me. We are trying to accomplish this project solely through donations.
