Training Opportunities: Disaster Preparation

American Red Cross Shelter Operations

Regardless of the emergency, when large groups of people are temporarily displaced from their homes, the American Red Cross responds by opening and operating shelters. The Red Cross provides shelter for disaster victims in public and private facilities and relies upon volunteers from the local community. This course certifies you to effectively assist a Red Cross shelter.

This is a full-day course comprised of three hours of class time plus a 3 1/2 hour simulation exercise.
