  • proper handling techniques
  • general care and special needs

Intake and Shelter Set Up

As volunteers, we want to be prepared for every possible scenario that may arise and training helps us prepare for that. This exercise helps create checklists to increase our efficiency when doing intake and setting up a shelter during an event or emergency.
