Event description

Description

Interested in deploying as a Disaster Services Worker?

Major disaster deployments are not for everyone; are you one of those people that can do this kind of work?

  • Friday September 22nd 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm: “Introduction to Disaster Services”
  • Saturday September 23rd 9:00 am – 4:00 pm: “Disaster Food Services” and “Fundamentals of Emotional and Spiritual Care.”

This two-day training program is required for persons to be considered eligible for deployment abroad. If you can attend only one of the sessions, please do so; more will follow.

Additionally, candidates for deployment must create an online profile with our Disaster Services Website, complete our volunteer paperwork along with a background check, and conduct an interview with the Director of Disaster Services.

Deployment to major disaster sites is a calling that is challenging and immensely rewarding. It is not for everyone. Deployments, which typically are limited to two weeks, consist of long days (12 hr easy), rugged sleeping and living conditions, minimal amenities, and possible very limited or no internet access. Good health and a compassionate demeanor are ideal. If this kind of work is right for you, the rewards are profound.

Register now for both Friday eve and Saturday day classes.

The effects of the flooding in Texas may fade from the news soon, but the relief effort there is just starting.
