Preparedness Train-the-Trainer

  • Instructor Training
Make preparedness a sustainable part of your organization’s culture by training your staff to provide disaster preparedness courses onsite at your organization. Your in-house instructors will complete our Disaster Preparedness Presenter’s Workshop, which will provide them with the information and materials they need to teach the one-hour Be Red Cross Ready Course.

Develop a Training Plan

  • Contact the Red Cross at or (415) 427-8148 to develop a preparedness training plan for your organization.

Complete a Statement of Understanding

  • Once you have submitted your preparedness training plan, the Red Cross will provide you with a statement of understanding. We ask you to complete and return before your in-house instructors participate in their training.
