On Saturday, April 12, the Kentucky Baptist Convention staff will be at First Baptist Church of Pikeville to conduct Disaster Relief Training from 9AM-4PM. Here is a description of the training from the KBC Website:
“When disaster strikes, some of the first to respond to help are Southern Baptist disaster relief volunteers. Kentucky has an active disaster relief program which works in concert with similar programs in other states. Whether the disaster occurs in the state of Kentucky or elsewhere in the nation or the world, Kentucky volunteers may be called out to help.
Each Phase I session (for new volunteers) begins at 9 a.m., local time, and ends at 4 p.m. on Saturday only at each location. Phase I is during the morning session, 9-12; the afternoon session from 1-4 will be the volunteer’s choice of a Phase II class. The course fee includes Phase I & Phase II training on the same day, disaster relief hat, Phase I manual, background check, photo ID badge and lunch from 12-1. Course Fee $40.
Phase II classes are 1-4 p.m. at each location. The fee includes as many Phase II courses as the volunteer wishes to take, new photo ID badge and background check. Completion of Phase I is a pre-requisite. Course fee $20.
Returning volunteers will attend one of the following Phase II course options:
- Basic CPR
- Chainsaw Safety
- Emergency Child Care
- Evangelism in Crisis
- First Aid
- Flood relief
- Safe Food
- Water Purification
- Laundry Unit Set-up
Kentucky volunteers can staff feeding units designed to deliver thousands of hot meals on short notice, move in with chainsaws to help remove debris, do the dirty work of helping families remove mud from flooded homes and provide many other disaster relief services.”
