TRAINING/EVENTS

As we have learned in the recent past -  it is not IF disaster will strike but WHEN disaster will strike our communities.

Are we prepared as a unit to work together to supply Medical, Food Service, Sheltering, CERT, DART, etc. services to our communities?

Are you prepared as a volunteer to step into one of these areas and provide assistance to your family, friends and neighbors?
 
Do you know the other people in our Corps that you will be working with and depending on during an emergency?
 
We have many training/fundraising  events throughout the year that need your participation. These events will provide you with the training and experience needed to work with your team during a disaster.
 
Many expressed interest in being a part of the Food Service , DART ,Community Relations  our other Response Team when you signed-up. We need you to participate in our events for training and team building.
