Orientation & Credentialing

Volunteer orientation is open to any member of a Southern Baptist church who is at least 18 years of age. Attending orientation does not obligate you to serve, but is necessary before serving. A Disaster Relief ID badge will be issued to those who complete orientation and a background check. Updating an expiring/expired badge requires EVERYONE to complete orientation and a background check; currently, every three (3) years.

Orientations and credentialing events may include feeding, chainsaw, mud-out/ash-out, shower/laundry, first aid, damage assessment, formstack, and blue cap training. Damage assessment, formstack and blue cap training are limited to returning team members who have completed prerequisites.
