Volunteer Reception Center
What is a VRC?
Sounds Good...So What's the Problem?
A major difficulty for the Navarre ares is that the county seat, Milton, is separated from the South Santa Rosa area by Escambia Bay, East Bay, and Eglin Air Force Base. But many of the volunteers, and those who would be needing the most help, are in South Santa Rosa. After an event such as a hurricane, we have enough problems with communications and transportation. People should not need to physically go to Milton to register to help in their own community!
Where Does Navarre CERT Fit In?
Several Navarre CERT members have received training to open and operate a Volunteer Reception Center. If directed by Santa Rosa Emergency Management, Navarre CERT would establish a local VRC right here in Navarre. The specific location of the VRC would be announced by Santa Rosa County Emergency Management Officials.
