Emergency Shelter Training Set for Manzanita March 2nd

The Emergency Volunteer Corps of Nehalem Bay will hold an Emergency Shelter Orientation and Drill Saturday, March 2, from 1 to 4:30 p.m. at the Manzanita Calvary Bible Church. People interested in learning to serve at a shelter are invited to attend and participate.
The free training will cover shelter communications, feeding, information, registration, health services and safety. Participants will also drill with inventories of equipment, supplies and food.

Other people interested in portraying “clients,” people needing shelter in the emergency, are also welcome. They should arrive at 2 p.m.

Questions about the shelter drill, as well as requests to train or serve as clients, can be addressed to Velda Handler, RN, EVCNB Shelter Division Chair and Calvary Bible Church Shelter Coordinator at Velda.Handler@evcnb.org or 503-812-4491.
