The Divisional Director of Disaster Services will be at Houston Northwest to offer the Introduction to  Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Response on Friday evening May 10 and Saturday May 11.  Disaster Aid USA will also be present.  Disaster Aid USA is a project of Rotary International that provides a way to give people in disaster potable water when safe municipal water is unavailable or temporarily unsafe.  Participation of the NARS Ham Radio Club is also being confirmed for the event. 



This will be a great opportunity for Salvationists from all Corps (whether the currently have a canteen at the Corps or not) to be trained and certified by The Salvation Army for basic disaster response.  Salvationist in the Houston Area are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity, but we will have to limit the number to about 50 for this event so get your registration forms in early. 

There is no cost for the training but we will ask for a $5.00 donation per person to cover food costs. Additional details and registration form can be found at this LINK.
