The centers are created to manage the influx of spontaneous volunteers who come forward to offer help after a major disaster; they provide a place where large numbers of volunteers can be efficiently processed and referred to agencies needing their services after a disaster.
This process provides an easy way to register volunteers and manage requests for volunteers from the community.
Individuals interested in learning more about helping during times of disaster or want to become trained in managing a volunteer reception center are welcome to attend the training.
Register online at www.southernmainecoad.org or call Meaghan Arzberger at 985-3359. The training is free with beverages provided.
