Disaster Work Begins Before Disaster Strikes

The Salvation Army, preparation for disaster response is an important part of their ability to respond when disaster strikes. When disasters occur, The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services rely on trained volunteers to help serve and respond in times of need.

 The training is open to anyone who wishes to gain an overview of The Salvation Army’s mission and its role within disaster work. Participants will learn how to prepare and equip themselves to help serve the local community in times of crisis as well as the basics of safe food handling.
 The class is an introduction to The Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services and ServSafe® Food Handler. The training is set for this Saturday, May 20, 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM in Chickasha. (lunch will be provided).
