10. Red Cross Training 13-16 June 19

I bring you greetings from Clark County, Ohio, celebrating Hamvention week and one month without a tornado.

Many ARES members on tonight’s net are also enrolled as local American Red Cross volunteers.  Those who choose to work in Disaster Services Technology will soon have a rare training opportunity.

This year’s ARC Indiana Regional Training Institute will be held June 13-16 at Huntington University in Huntington, Indiana.  Huntington is just a few miles from Fort Wayne in the northwestern part of the state.

On Friday, June 14th the institute will offer the five workshops that constitute DST101.  This all day series prepares Red Cross staff to work incidents as members of Disaster Services Technology – the communications and computer component of Red Cross disaster response.

Those interested in learning more about this and other institute opportunities should contact their American Red Cross Disaster Program Specialist in either Dayton or Troy, as appropriate.
