The Beecken Center of The School of Theology at The University of the South in Sewanee, Tenn., is hosting a volunteer disaster chaplaincy training course on July 31–August 1, 2014 in partnership with the National Disaster Interfaiths Network. Religious leaders of all faiths are invited, as well as emergency managers and disaster mental health professionals.
The two-day training prepares clergy, religious leaders, or spiritual care providers to volunteer as disaster chaplains in mass-care settings, or to serve as disaster chaplains within their house of worship, religious community, or professional institution. The course is compliant with NIMS (National Incident Management Systems) and incorporates FEMA Incident Command System (FEMA IS 100) training. It also complies with the National VOAD Points of Consensus for Disaster Spiritual Care.
