The American Red Cross is recruiting volunteers to help people prevent emergencies and be better prepared for disasters.
Prospective volunteers are invited to attend a weekend training academy April 18 and 19. In one weekend, the Red Cross will provide all the training you need to participate in our lifesaving preparedness programs. You will get hands-on experience delivering real, lifesaving services in a local community. You’ll also learn what it takes to mitigate the effects of a disaster in your home, neighborhood, or at work. You may find your own life changed in the process.
WHAT: Preparedness Volunteer Training Academy
WHEN: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, April 18, and Sunday, April 19, 2015
WHERE: American Red Cross Mile High Chapter, 444 Sherman St., Denver
REGISTER: Contact Ashley.Turner@redcross.org or (303) 607-4731 to register.
The Academy includes training in Community, Youth, Business, and Individual Preparedness. Participants will go on a field trip Saturday morning to carry out the Home Fire Campaign, which involves visiting homes in person to educate families about fire safety and to install lifesaving smoke alarms.
