"Prepared, Not Scared." Volunteer Alexandria is the lead agency that educates and prepares Alexandria's residents, schools, organizations and businesses for all hazards such as natural disasters and terrorist attacks. In partnership with the City of Alexandria's Office of Emergency Management, we raise awareness, recruit, train and manage volunteers to be prepared and respond during these events. In the event of an emergency, we run a Volunteer Reception Center, which provides a central location where volunteers can go to assist with disaster recovery.
