The Red Cross of Montana will host a free volunteer recruitment and training workshop Oct. 13-14 at the Morledge Kimball, rooms 119 and 125, at Rocky Mountain College.
From 5 to 8 p.m. on Oct. 13, participants will get an overview of how Red Cross deploys and manages resources during a disaster such as a wildfire or flood, and how it prepares for disasters before they happen. On Oct. 14 from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., attendees will learn how to set up, manage and take down a shelter. Participants also will familiarize themselves with duties performed when running a shelter during a disaster.
The two-day course is limited to 30 participants, but a waiting list will be kept and future training scheduled if necessary. Those interested are asked to attend both days. Register by noon on Oct. 11 at montanaredcrosstraining.eventbrite.com. For more information, call Abbra Firman at 210-8286.
