Volunteer orientation is open to any member of a Southern Baptist church who is at least 18 years of age. Attending orientation does not obligate you to serve, but is necessary before serving. A Disaster Relief ID badge will be issued to those who complete orientation and a background check. Updating an expiring/expired badge requires EVERYONE to complete orientation and a background check; currently, every three (3) years.
Orientations and credentialing events may include feeding, chainsaw, mud-out/ash-out, shower/laundry, first aid, damage assessment, formstack, and blue cap training. Damage assessment, formstack and blue cap training are limited to returning team members who have completed prerequisites.
This event will be held at the Disaster Relief Team Center in Okarche, OK.
