Tennessee DR Training Facts:

All volunteers must be 18 years old to serve.
All volunteers must be a member of a cooperating Tennessee Southern Baptist church.
We ask that you please take specialized classroom training after you have taken the prerequisite course of “Introduction to Southern Baptist Disaster Relief.”
Disaster Relief credentials and the yellow hat/visor will be given after “Introduction to Southern Baptist Disaster Relief” and specialized classes have been taken.

Costs: Because of new directives from Homeland Security, FEMA and other national agencies related to the training and screening of volunteer disaster relief workers, we have begun a cost recovery plan. The cost of a new 3 year (ID badge) credential is $36.00 (for newly trained volunteers or those that had credentials that expired in 2014). The new badge will expire in three years (2017), effective January 1, 2014.

This fee will cover not only the cost of the ID and background check but also the cost of any of the basic training courses a volunteer wants to take (except for First Aid classes and other specialized classes such as ServSafe, etc.). There will also be a new hat and a special Disaster Relief members pin given to those involved.

If you have had Introduction to Disaster Relief and / or any specialized classes, and your class certification has expired or will expire this year, please take the opportunity and get re-certified, so that you may be able to serve when a disaster occurs. 

Introduction to Disaster Relief: (Need to recertify every 3 years, regardless of activation.) PLEASE PRE-REGISTER FOR ALL CLASSES TO HELP US WITH EITHER CLASSROOM MATERIALS AND/OR MEAL COUNTS.

Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) Training

This training is truly critical for all those who desire to become Disaster Relief chaplains, and is helpful for existing chaplains to take as a refresher if it has been a few years since you took the training.  

November 1-2, 2014 – Individual Crisis Intervention
Knox County Baptist Association, 7709 Westland Drive, Knoxville
8 AM - 6 PM Saturday and 2 - 5 PM Sunday


Program is designed to teach participants the fundamentals of, and specific protocols for, individual crisis interventions.  Participants will gain the knowledge and tools to provide one-on-one crisis intervention (psychological first aid) and to make referrals as needed.

The instructor, Paul Trumpore, is discounting the courses at $125 and also offering them to us as a two for one deal, so the cost will be one price at $125 for both courses.  If you elect to take only one class, the charge still has to be $125.

To enroll, contact Paul directly at (865) 805-2890 or email pntrumpore@aol.com or contact Lou Mulsand at mulsand@aol.com before the October 17, 2014 early registration deadline.  After October 17, there will be an increase of $50 enrollment fee.

November 7-8, 2014 – Group Crisis Intervention
Knox County Baptist Association, 7709 Westland Drive, Knoxville
6 - 9 PM Friday and 8 AM - 7 PM Saturday

 
Program is designed to teach participants small and large group crisis intervention tools.  Participants will gain knowledge and practical experience to provide the following in a team-based setting: demobilizations, defusings, debriefings, crisis management briefings, respite centers and appropriate referrals.

The instructor, Paul Trumpore, is discounting the courses at $125 and also offering them to us as a two for one deal, so the cost will be one price at $125 for both courses.  If you elect to take only one class, the charge still has to be $125.

To enroll, contact Paul directly at (865) 805-2890 or email pntrumpore@aol.com or contact Lou Mulsand at mulsand@aol.com before the October 17, 2014 early registration deadline.  After October 17, there will be an increase of $50 enrollment fee.

(If you are unable to attend either class, Paul is offering the same deal at Bellevue Baptist Church, 2000 Appling Road, Cordova on November 12-13, 2014: 8AM-5PM Wed; 8AM-9PM Thurs; 8AM-5PM Fri.  To enroll, contact Paul directly at (865) 805-2890 or email pntrumpore@aol.com)
