This year has been a remarkable year for CCPMRC. We have had successful outreach events, enhanced training programs, and more volunteers engaged! We have had a diverse number of events under our 2 initiatives PrepareDC and Point of Dispensing exercises, building community resilience in the DC area. Our outreach activities range from health fairs, preparations for mass public gatherings, unique trainings like the Active Shooter Scale, and patient tracking services. CCPMRC takes pride in its mission to strengthen the public in emergency preparedness. We want to give a special thanks to our CCPMRC volunteers! We look forward to the upcoming year and all that it holds!
Happy New Year from CCPMRC! We encourage our members to stay active and involved as important emergency responders.
Stay tuned for up coming announcements for the new year!
