International Disaster Response

International Disaster Response Training
Saturday, April 25
8:30am – 4:30pm in the Fellowship Hall
Cost: $20
This one training will provide a body of information that will help responders and volunteers better prepare to help those in need after disasters have struck. The more we prepare, the more effectively we will be able to assist those affected by a disaster. The training is designed to utilize classroom instruction and participatory, small group activities and will be led by an experienced disaster responder/trainer. The objective of the training is to produce trained responders who can effectively and efficiently assist a community of disaster survivors and then possibly help that community get on the road to rehabilitation and reduce future vulnerability.
