The Red Cross is looking to train more disaster shelter workers and there’s an introductory training session coming up.
This also is a great opportunity for HHS folks who will be working with the Red Cross in the event of a large-scale evacuation, to become familiar with how the Red Cross operates its shelters.
We are in the wildfire season and California is already being hit with major fire disasters. You can help the people in your community by serving as a Red Cross volunteer shelter worker when a disaster strikes. Join our Virtual Training so you can answer the call when your community needs it most.
We aspire to turn compassion into action so that all people affected by disaster in your community will receive care, shelter, and hope.
Our shelter workers are highly trained! In this session you can complete 40% of the training in our 2-hour virtual session. The remaining courses can be completed online, at your leisure.
Two sessions to choose from (choose one):
Day session: Wednesday, August 10, 10:00 AM – 12 Noon Evening Session: Thursday, August 11, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
