Partner Agency Emergency Facility Operations Workshop

A basic level, instructor-led workshop is designed to prepare your Church or Organization to become our partner in your community’s disaster preparedness plan. This workshop will provide pre-incident training and orientation materials to your organizations volunteer team. What better way to help your community in times of critical needs. As a volunteer you will receive training that will prepare you to work with other Red Cross volunteers operating in your facility in times of emergency.

As a "Red Cross partner" your facility will receive free disaster training courses in three evenings to prepare your staff to understand how to open, operate and close an emergency facility. You will also learn some specific ways your friends and family can help.

First Night:
Monday 13 April, 6 to 9pm at the TN Ridge Baptist Church annex.

Translating your compassion into action:
We will provide an overview of the role of the Red Cross in your community's actions in preparing for, responding to and recovering from emergencies and disasters. Then we will provide an overview of the activities performed by the Mass Care Services group in support of a disaster relief operation. These services include feeding (mobile and fixed), bulk distribution and sheltering operations. You’ll learn how your church can work together with other agencies to better serve our community. Then we will end this session with instruction on basic food safety and the principles of safe food handling.

Second Night:
Monday 20 April, 6 to 9pm at the TN Ridge Baptist Church annex.

Shelter Operations:
The purpose of this basic level Disaster Services training is to prepare volunteers to effectively and sensitively manage shelter operations as a team while meeting the needs of people displaced as a result of a disaster.
