When disaster strikes, will you be prepared and know what to do? Do you like helping people and making a difference in people’s lives?
In September two Disaster Preparedness & Response Training classes are being offered - September 17-20 at Los Altos UMC, 655 Magdalena Avenue, Los Altos, CA 94024 and September 22-24 at Reno First UMC, 209 W. First Street, Reno, NV 89501.
The mission of an early response team is to provide a caring Christian presence in the aftermath of a disaster and it is done under very specific guidelines. These classes will prepare you by offering guidance and direction. Expect to learn about the phases of disaster and what roles you, your church, your district superintendent, your conference, and the UM Committee on Relief (UMCOR) can play.
There are a limited number of scholarships available and late fees apply after September 1 - so sign up early!
