Rocky Mountain Conference ACS DR Simulation

On April 22, Sunday morning, the Rocky Mountain Conference Adventist Community Services held the first Disaster Response Simulation at H.M. Richards Elementary School. The purpose was to give volunteers a hands-on experience needed to respond to a disaster. “The leadership team for Disaster Response felt doing the simulation would allow the volunteers to have an extended training. Before all we did was to give the theory of donations management, now we have given the practical side,” said Cathy Kissner, RMC ACS Director. All the leadership team was involved in the training so that volunteers could meet and interact with each other. “Everyone felt the day was well spent and learned a great deal,” Kissner added. There were 30 individuals trained from three different States. Elder Marshall and Julie Gonzales, Texas Conference ACS/ACSDR Directors, were the guest attendees.
