​​

​​​April 10, 2020 (Fairbanks, AK) – The Interior Alaska Unified Command today announces the launch of the Fairbanks Area Citizen Corps (FACC) website which was created to serve as a "one-stop-shop" for the community to learn about the many ways that individuals can assist with helping to flatten the curve during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The mission of Fairbanks Area Citizen Corps "is to harness the power of every individual through education, training, and volunteer service to make communities safer, stronger, and better prepared to respond to the threats of terrorism, crime, public health issues, and disasters of all kinds."

The website provides information on the needs of items such as Personal Protective Equipment (PPE's) as well as volunteer opportunities. "I am continuously humbled by the outpouring of support by our community to help us combat COVID-19," said Lisa Herbert, Donations Lead for the Community Support Branch and Vice President of Public Relations for Usibelli Coal Mine. We hope this website and Facebook page helps create a centralized area to connect local donors and volunteers to the needs of our health care clinics, various agencies and non-profit organizations. As well as our families, friends and neighbors. It truly is about people helping people."

"Fairbanks is an amazing community. Whenever there is a major crisis, emergency services are stretched to their limits and beyond. When this happens, whether it's during a flood, wildfire, winter storm or this pandemic, people are willing to jump in and help in whatever way they can. Fairbanks Area Citizen Corps is here to help organize those volunteers and resources so the people on the front lines get the help they need, when they need it. Having volunteers take care of tasks like traffic control, security, running errands and managing donations enables first responders focus on their very important job of saving lives," said Lorna Illingworth, FACC Executive Director.

This website will provide people in vulnerable situations and the organizations assisting them with a way to connect with the resources of our golden heart community," said Michael Sanders, City of Fairbanks Housing and Homeless Coordinator.

For more information on donation needs, cloth coverings or mask making information as well as volunteer opportunities to help vulnerable populations, visit the Fairbanks Area Citizens Corps on Facebook and on the web at https://www.fairbanksacc.org/.

If you have any questions concerning Donations, please call the Fairbanks Area Citizen Corps Call Center at 459-7474.
