Being deployed for a disaster response operation can be a very exciting and rewarding experience. This training will help individuals prepare for their deployment so that they can stay safe, healthy, and comfortable while working in sometimes stressful and unpredictable circumstances. Topics will include packing for your deployment; Disaster 101 (an overview of how disaster response works); terminology you may hear while deployed; taking care of yourself; and suggestions for having the best experience you can.
Volunteer Management can be as challenging as it is rewarding. Putting well-intentioned individuals to work in their communities in meaningful and fulfilling service requires patience, structure, and creativity. A disaster program presents additional challenges in recruitment, retention, and recognition of its volunteers. This training will address these challenges and explore some possible solutions to keeping your disaster volunteers engaged in and enthusiastic about their service. We will discuss ways to creatively recruit, retain, and recognize your volunteers in order to ensure that their experience is rewarding and enlightening despite the potentially unpredictable and possibly chaotic nature of disaster services work.
