Receive training in many areas of Red Cross Disaster Services, including community disaster education, mass care and sheltering. Groups interested in formal training can consider Ready When the Time Comes (RWTC), a corporate volunteer program that taps the human resources of corporate America. The American Red Cross trains employees from partnering corporations and organizations and mobilizes them as a community-based volunteer force when disaster strikes.
Groups can also support the community in times of disaster by providing their facilities. The Greater Idaho chapter can review opportunities for your organization to assist with shelter or warehouse needs.
Companies participating in RWTC enjoy the following benefits:
- An efficient turn-key way to involve your company and your employees in responding to critical local needs
- Multiple and varied ways for people to be engaged in the community
- Opportunity for employees to learn new knowledge and skills
- Visible alignment with one of the most respected organizations in the country
