3rd Annual Maine Partners in Emergency Preparedness Conferance

posted Mar 1, 2010, 1:16 PM by Maine VOAD Admin   [ updated May 10, 2011, 9:17 AM ]

April 28-29 at the Augusta Civic Center was a great success! VOAD had an inside booth promoting our members. Ready Freddy even showed up for a visit on Friday during lunch. Our members go a chance to show of some of their capabilities as well in a display we called "circle the wagons".  Two muck out trailers, a shower trailer, Red Cross IRV, Salvation Army canteen, mobile food "pantry", and volunteer processing trailer were all on display in the parking lot. We are excited to see how we can promote our members next year as we partner to prepare for the unexpected.
