When a disaster strikes in the New Hampshire & Vermont region, your local American Red Cross responds, providing food and shelter to those who have lost everything. Now, the Red Cross is looking for members of the community who want to be trained now to quickly take action to help their neighbors should a disaster strike.
During the Disaster Responder Boot Camp, volunteers will learn the essentials of responding to a disaster. Participants will become qualified to feed and shelter members of their community during a disaster. In addition to classroom instruction, the boot camp features interactive case studies, with volunteers learning how to help individuals, families and communities to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters.
The Boot Camp is also the first step to becoming eligible to deploy to large disasters across the country.
