Oklahoma City DRT
Foursquare Chaplains International (FCI), in partnership with the Foursquare Districts and local Foursquare churches, is offering a 16 hour course on Disaster Relief Training, which will help to qualify Foursquare pastors, ministers, and lay leaders to become first responders in disaster or crisis situations (local, regional, national).
To qualify to be let through the “gate” by FEMA, this Disaster Relief Training is required. Attendees will walk away from the two day training with the ability to know their role in crisis response, how to minister, how to stay out of the incident, how to help in organizing in the midst of chaos, who the other agencies are and how to operate within them, and be certified to be that first responder. Additionally, they would become a part of a more mature, better trained, fruitful, involved and relevant group of leaders.
In addition to this training, trainees will also be asked to take four online NIMS (National Incident Management System) courses, and two recommended CISM (Critical Incident Stress Management) courses. All trainees seeking to become a trainer will need to also attend a “train the trainers” course. Licensed Foursquare pastors receiving this initial 16 hour training will be certified as a “Disaster Relief Chaplain”. Uncredentialed leaders will qualify as a “Disaster Relief Worker”.
This Disaster Relief Training will be offered locally at Hope Church (Oklahoma City Foursquare Church) on October 18-19, 2013. For both days, training will begin at 8:00am and conclude at 5:00pm. The cost for this training (typically $200.00) is being offered for $60.00 per person.
Additionally, the Salvation Army will be holding their Intro to Disaster class on Thursday evening, October 17 at Hope Church. It is a free and optional class, and it runs from 5:00-10:00pm. If you have any questions about it or would like to attend this optional and additional class, please connect with Charlie Forthman at email@example.com.
