This training is designed for those interested in becoming Southern Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers. It’s also intended for current volunteers interested in refreshing their skills or renewing their Disaster Relief ID badges.

4 Training Classes Offered

Introduction to Southern Baptist Disaster Relief

This class is required for all new volunteers. The class will give an overview of the work of Disaster Relief and ministry with disaster survivors. We will also cover what to expect on a disaster response, what to bring, etc.

Feeding Team

This class will provide an overview of mass care feeding, whether using a church kitchen to prepare meals to support volunteers responding to a disaster or using a kitchen trailer unit to prepare meals for the impacted community. Emphasis will be given to operating procedures and food safety. This class will include classroom and hands-on kitchen work as well as online videos to be viewed prior to training day.

Recovery Team

This class will overview the work of the flood recovery and chainsaw teams beginning with the assessment process for what we do when we arrive on site to when we depart with emphasis given to safety.  Although this is a physical ministry, many tasks do not require physical strength.

Introduction to Damage Assessment and Recovery Administration

This class is an overview of what happens behind the scenes during a deployment. We will discuss the basics of initial damage assessment as well as methods and tools for managing job requests, camp operations (including housing, meals and other support items), dealing with people (both the survivors and our volunteers) and the general mechanics of running a smooth operation. If available, students may find it useful to have a smart phone, tablet, or laptop with them.
