The Salvation Army Tallahassee Corps will be holding an introduction for its Emergency Disaster Services program and free disaster training Friday, March 21, 2014. The training will take place at the Salvation Army’s office located at 2410 Allen Road Tallahassee, FL 32312 from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
During a disaster, The Salvation Army relies upon trained disaster workers to coordinate emergency relief operations and deliver fast, efficient service to disaster survivors. The Salvation Army has expanded its capacity throughout the United States to provide mass feeding, personal care items, and counseling and referrals for social services for victims of weather related and other natural disasters.
The Salvation Army relies heavily on volunteers who support its programs. Volunteers play a crucial role in response efforts during a disaster by positively impacting the lives of those involved. Trained volunteer disaster teams led by Salvation Army staff are available to serve locally and nationwide. This course is designed for new disaster workers who have limited disaster experience. The course provides participants with an overview of The Salvation Army’s mission and its role within disaster work. Participants will also be taught how to prepare and equip themselves for a disaster deployment.
