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: 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 expire in 2015). The new badge will expire in three years (2018), effective January 1, 2015.

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.
