Be Ready to Help in a Crisis

We prepare individuals and groups to be ready to respond when a crisis hits. 

Individual training


Disaster Relief Volunteer training qualifies you to volunteer during the long-term recovery phase of disaster relief and use your skills to help communities rebuild.  It consists of online training modules that provides you with the background needed to succeed as a volunteer.


Online training allows you to continue to IRT training or deploy with a long-term team.



Immediate Relief Team (IRT) training qualifies you to join a leadership team that deploys in the wake of a disaster to meet the needs of a community. Ideal candidates are in good physical shape and are willing to deploy into chaotic and challenging situations.


Typical deployments last 1-2 weeks and occur within the first days to weeks following a disaster.


Prerequisite: Disaster Relief Volunteer training


Recovery Operations Team (ROT) training qualifies you to join a leadership team that helps oversee the recovery operations for a community. Ideal candidates bring work experience skills and have more flexibility of time to devote to longer term deployments.


Typical deployments last 1-12 months but are subject to volunteer schedules.


Prerequisites: Disaster Relief Volunteer training
