Gloucester County Recognized for Digital Distinction
Gloucester County was recognized in the top-ten ranking of localities (up to 150,000 population category) for the 2019 Digital Counties Survey conducted by the Center for Digital Government and the National Association of Counties. Gloucester was one of only six localities in Virginia to be recognized in this category. 
The award recognizes localities for their technology practices including initiatives that streamline delivery of government services, encourage openness/transparency, collaboration and shared services enhance cyber security and contribute to disaster response and recovery efforts.  
“Innovative counties across the U.S. are leveraging technology and data to complete unique projects that better serve citizens, save taxpayer money and protect data,” said Teri Takai, Executive Director of CDG.  “We congratulate this year’s winners for their accomplishments.”
This is the seventh time Gloucester County has been noted for exemplary digital services through the Digital County Survey recognition. The Digital Counties Survey awards are presented in conjunction with the National Association of Counties Annual Conference planned for July.

Do you live in Mathews, Middlesex or Gloucester?
Are you prepared?
Do you want to help your community during an emergency?

Your Community Emergency Response Team is a group of community volunteers that learn to:
Manage utilities and put out small fires, provide basic medical aid,
search for and rescue victims safely, and more!
C.E.R.T. is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens may initially be on their own and their actions can make a difference. While people will respond to others in need without the training, one goal of the CERT program is to help them do so effectively and efficiently without placing themselves in unnecessary danger.
C.E.R.T. training is free. The classes are July 27 and 28 from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. 
at 7478 Justice Drive Gloucester
