Emergency volunteer training coming to SA
The EVP (Emergency Volunteer Project) is slated to come to San Antonio on Sunday and Monday, July 21-22, for instructive training in cases of emergency situations. This is an excellent team from Israel who have hands-on experience with emergency situations and face the reality of them quite frequently.
Organizers use the Boston Marathon tragedy as one case of an emergency situation that we could face at any time. What would you do to help in such a scenario?
Topics will include disaster preparedness, medical operations, disaster psychology, firefighting for civilian, emergency medical response, triage, and light search and rescue.
EVP recruits firefighters, search and rescue personnel, paramedics, nurses, EMTs, social workers, maintenance engineers, plumbers, architects, and men and women with no specific skill set who will work within the community providing aid for populations confined to bomb shelters and municipal emergency warehouse facilities.
To participate in this training that will certify you to help in emergency situations both in the United States and in Israel, register at http://bit.ly/15uD1jy or contact Dorothy Pantuso @ (830) 484-7029.
