Red Cross is asking ADRN 
 to be part of Special Simulation
Hurricane Season begins in June.  Now is the time to get trained in Shelter Fundamentals! 
On Saturday, June 7th at Hill Country Bible Church (NW Lobby) from 7:30AM-3:00PM, Red Cross will be hosting a Shelter Simulation training to prepare ADRN volunteers and other participants hands on training for shelter registration, dormitory management, feeding, and other information.  Red Cross will have quite a few actors playing the role of evacuees fleeing the costs from a hurricane.  This will make the exercise realistic and impactful for all volunteers. If you are an ADRN volunteer and have taken the Red Cross Shelter training in the last 3-5 years, you may register without taking additional training.  If you are an ADRN volunteer and you have not taken any previous Red Cross Shelter training, you will need to first complete the Shelter Training Fundamentals course as a prerequisite to the Shelter on May 29th at Hill Country Bible Church (NW Lobby-Rm#4.114) from 6PM-9:30PM.  Please click on one or both classes below to register.  Both trainings are FREE and a Certificate will be given after completing the course.  You will need to set up a username/password with Red Cross when registering online.  Please bring a sack lunch.  Snacks will be provided.
