Volunteering can be one of the most rewarding part of someone’s life.  The time you give to others will make such a difference.

Sadly, many people, for what ever reason, don’t or aren’t able to donate some time.  Possibly, lack of information regarding the need and opportunities is the problem.

Well, here is your chance.  Our news partner, WZZM TV13, says the American Red Cross is offering disaster response training geared to individuals who want to volunteer to help victims of a disaster. This course is a prerequisite for all advanced disaster training offered for American Red Cross disaster volunteers. This course is open to the public is an entry level instructor led course.

Monday evening, March 12th is set aside for the disaster-training course “Disaster Services: An Overview.”   The course will be from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the American Red Cross, 313 West Webster Avenue, Muskegon, MI 49440.

This training will prepare potential volunteers to understand the Red Cross role in disaster relief and prepare the participant for further training that will allow the participant to assist in responding to house fires, managing a shelter, feeding, meeting medical needs and providing emotional support to disaster victims.

“People do not always realize how simple it is to become a volunteer who will provide hands on help to our neighbors when their home is destroyed by a disaster, either right here in our community or across the United States”, said Sue Gray, Disaster Action Team Volunteer and trainer.

There is no cost to participate in this training but, registration is required. Please call (231) 720-4243 to reserve a seat.
