Johnston County has an average of five home fires every month. The Disaster Action Team is second on the scene to help provide food, clothing and shelter to our neighbors in need. Please join us and learn how you can help your neighbors.
Participants will: Learn the Red Cross role and values for engaging with disaster clients, first responders and the public during a response; understand functions of the Disaster Action Team (DAT), and expectations for DAT workers on a response; discover roles a DAT member may perform on a large-scale disaster response; learn casework and recovery planning processes and the system used; learn how direct client assistance is issued and how referrals are made to community partners and complete training through a simulation drill, practicing the skills learned during the classroom sessions and, if desired, be assigned to a Disaster Action Team, and support the Red Cross in Johnston County.
