World Police & Fire Games Need 4,000 Volunteers

WPFG_final_games_logo_color_horizThe World Police & Fire Games is headed to Fairfax County this summer. With 12,000 or so public safety athletes competing at 53 local venues — including many in Reston and Herndon — organizers are putting out the call for thousands of volunteers.

Organizers will be holding an information Saturday on volunteering for the games, which will take place June 26 to July 5. Volunteers must be 18 or older.

The info session is at 10 a.m. at Reston Community Center Lake Anne. There will also be a session on March 4 at 6:30 p.m., also at RCC Lake Anne.

Reston will host 10 of the sports competitions — including the lake swim and the triathlon — and the Reston Town Center will be the Games Village, the center of WPFG activity and special events. Herndon will also host Pocket Billiards at Breakers Sky Lounge and the Weightlifting categories of Bench Press and Push Pull at the Herndon Community Center.

Fairfax 2015 organizers said volunteers are needed in many areas, ranging from greeting athletes and spectators to assisting with medal ceremonies to assisting athletes at the transportation hubs to blogging for the communications team.

To sign-up for the session, please send the name and email address of each attendee with the date of this session to [email protected].
