Get Ready, Helena!
The American Red Cross of Montana in conjunction with Montana Campus Compact is hosting Get Ready, Montana/ Ready Campus Training Institute at Helena’s Carroll College. The training will be held on Saturday, October 5, 2013 from 10:00AM to 3:00PM.
The training will teach participants the necessary skills to prepare for and minimize the impact of disasters on themselves and their families. Additional disaster response training will qualify participants to become Red Cross disaster response volunteers and help their community during disasters such as house fires, wildfires, winter storms, and floods. During 2012 alone, the Montana Red Cross directly assisted 646 community members and families affected by fires and other disasters, opening 20 shelters and serving over 11,000 meals.
The training will be held in Simperman Hall, Room 114 and lunch will be provided. To register, email ARCMTTraining@redcross.org or call 1-800-ARC-MONT and ask for the Disaster Training Coordinator.
The Get Ready, Montana/Ready Campus Training Institute is funded in part by the Corporation for National & Community Service, through a 9/11 National Day of Service & Remembrance grant.
