Red Cross hosting disaster training

On the 17th and 18th of February there is a fast-track disaster training available in Ottumwa at the Red Cross office.  Instead of having interested volunteers find individual trainings online or in the community, this is a condensed training designed to get potential volunteers ready for a disaster action team (DAT) response in just one setting.  Aspects of feeding, sheltering, client assistance, disaster assessment and client casework will be done together in one training, a great opportunity for anyone looking for a powerful volunteer opportunity.

Anyone intersted can contact Maria Biava at 515.314.6753 or by e-mail at
