VRC Training and Exercise
When a disaster occurs in a community, volunteers come running to help. Sometimes hundreds or even thousands of them will arrive with the best intentions and with skills that are urgently needed but all too often these volunteers aren't associated with any recognized disaster response agency. Even volunteers that are linked to disaster response agency need to have a place to report in order to be assigned to an area that can use their particular skills. What volunteers do and how they are utilized has tremendous impact on how quickly and effectively a community recovers so efficient and organized deployment of all responding volunteers is crucial.
The Volunteer Reception Center is activated by the City when a actual disaster actually happens. This training and exercise will allow our organization to identify gaps, weaknesses and strengthens of our plans.
