Disaster Relief Training – June 12, 2021
June 12 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
4 Training Classes Offered
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.
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.
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. The Recovery 1 trailer will be available to review the equipment used. Although this is a physical ministry, many tasks do not require physical strength.
Recovery Administration Team
This class is an overview of what happens behind the scenes during a deployment. We will discuss methods and tools for managing job requests, camp operations (including housing, meals and other support items), dealing with people (both the customer and our volunteers) and the general mechanics of running a smooth operation. If available, students may find it useful to have a smart phone, tablet, or laptop with them.
