AmeriCorps VISTA member Jill Rucker, Emergency Management Program Assistant for the City of Shoreline Office of Emergency Management, is a volunteer from the Washington State Service Corps VISTA project.
Rucker coordinated the recent Central Market Emergency Preparedness and Safety Fair that drew more than 350 residents seeking information about disaster preparedness.
The event also brought together a large group of local volunteers from the VIPS (Volunteers In Police Service), Fire Corps, MRC (Medical Reserve Corps), ACS (Auxiliary Communications Service - HAMS), WASART, (WA State Animal Response Team) and CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) programs.
