Introduction to Southern Baptist Disaster Relief
This class is required for all new volunteers. The class will give an overview of the work of Disaster Relief and ministry with disaster survivors. We will also cover what to expect on a disaster response, what to bring, etc.

Feeding Team
This class will provide an overview of mass care feeding, whether using a church kitchen to prepare meals to support volunteers responding to a disaster or using a kitchen trailer unit to prepare meals for the impacted community. Emphasis will be given to operating procedures and food safety. This class will include classroom and hands-on kitchen work as well as online videos to be viewed prior to training day.

Laundry Team
The laundry team provides important support to our volunteers, other responders and the community during disaster response. Volunteers will learn procedures for all stages of the laundry process from initial guest contact to returning clean laundry, with an emphasis on safe operation of equipment and spiritual care ministry.

Recovery Team
This class will overview the work of the flood recovery and chainsaw teams beginning with the assessment process for what we do when we arrive on site to when we depart with emphasis given to safety. Although this is a physical ministry, many tasks do not require physical strength.
