Fordham University’s Institute of International Humanitarian Affairs (IIHA) is sponsoring a Red Cross Disaster Reserve Institute on Saturday, Feb. 20.
Should a major disaster strikes the New York City area, the American Red Cross will need 10,000 Disaster Reserve Volunteers ready to staff up to 100 shelters and provide thousands of city residents with basic needs. The one-day training is free and includes lunch. Upon completion, participants will become certified Disaster Reserve Volunteers.
Space is extremely limited. To reserve a spot, email Jenna Felz, program director at IIHA, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The training takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (participants should arrive no later than 8:30 a.m.) at 520 West 49th St., New York, N.Y., 10019.
