History & Origins:


The Virginia Emergency Response Group (ERG) was started in 2012, to begin the steps of creating a localized group of VA citizens, dedicated to protecting our communities and protecting our constitutional rights. We teach survival, medical, communications, tactics, self defense and various other skills for anyone interested in the common defense of Virginia and her many communities. We are veterans and civilians, from all different ethnicities and walks of life, who believe in preserving liberty and justice for all. Our group is more than a prepper groupů it is a family, intent on serving and defending the communities within Virginia. This group is only recruiting VIRGINIA citizens.
VA ERG Disclaimer:
It is the duty of every citizen to protect and defend the unalienable rights of all members of the community. Under no circumstances will the VA ERG tolerate those who advocate acts of criminal violence, terrorism, racism or a change away from our republican form of government; nor will it support any specific political party or candidate, nor espouse any particular religious denomination or doctrine. All members must understand the duties and obligation of both citizens and government under the VA and US Constitution.
The VA ERG is looking for any able-bodied resident of Virginia (men and women) to join and to serve their community in times of need. Members must be 18 or older to join our ranks. For legal reasons at this time, those under 18 must have a parent as an active member of the organization. For more information about joining, please visit the Membership Page, complete our Membership Application form and contact us today. We are actively seeking new recruits to help strengthen our existing units, as well as, to build new companies in the Northern, Coastal, Valley and Mountain regions as outlined below. Once initial training has been completed, it is our goal to have these companies fully based and operational within their own geographic regions and not training in Central VA.
