Disaster Response Training – Monday, November 11 (3:00 – 5:15 p.m.), Bonsack Baptist Church

  • Local disasters happen all around us every day.  And, large scale disasters seem to be a mainstay in the regular news cycle.  Do you watch these stories and wonder how you can assist?  Do you feel a “nudge” to want to do something but don’t know how to respond?  Come join us during this extended seminar time and throw your name in the hat to respond the next time a disaster strikes.  This event is basically a “live version” of our online training and, once completed, you will be placed on our official “call out” list which will give you opportunity to respond with others in order to bring healing and hope to those affected by disaster.
  • This seminar requires advanced registration and there is a fee of $25 for those training for the first time.  If you have received training within the last three years and are attending in order to recertify then the fee is waived. Register online for this training.
