Final Push for Volunteers to support the 2015 World Police & Fire Games
Over the last several months, the Fairfax 2015 Volunteer Services Team has worked tirelessly to recruit the 4,000 plus volunteers needed to put on the 2015 Games. The finish line is in sight with thousands of volunteers already signed up.
There is still time to join the team! There are volunteer roles available in Protocol, Venues and Competition, Registration and Accreditation, Media Relations, Logistics, Transportation and Special Events. If any of those areas sounds interesting or they are part of your professional life, visit http://fairfax2015.com/volunteer and join the team!
Over the next few months, things will be moving fast and furious for the volunteer program. A few weeks ago it was announced that all volunteer applications will be accepted pending a background check! So, if you’ve filled out the volunteer application and your background check comes back clean, then the next steps for you begin in May with shift selection.
Volunteers will receive a note that they can sign up for the volunteer shifts they will work during the Games. Please note, those volunteers who sign up for four or more shifts will be given priority during scheduling. In addition, volunteers will be required to attend at least one general training session. Some volunteer roles will require specialized role specific training. All training information will be shared once shifts have been selected.
“Volunteer recruitment has been robust for the last several months and we are finalizing the shift assignments, planning training sessions and selecting uniforms. Over the next several months our team will be working directly with volunteers to prepare them for the week of the Games. It is a very exciting time!” said Director, Volunteer Services Diana Rothe-SmithLast modified on
