We will be conducting “Just in Time Training” for the Goodwin Fire as follows:

Shelter Fundamentals

Multi Agency Resource Center Training

Education Service Agency

2970 Centerpointe East Drive, Prescott

Wednesday, July 5

9:00 -12:00

A “MARK,” also know as an Individual Assistance Service Center, puts all the agencies an individual will need in one location so they will not need to visit each agency separately. This training is open to VOAD (Voluntary Organization Active in Disaster) agencies as well as churches and service organizations. We need people to help run the center as well as organizations that have something to do with disaster.

To register, email [email protected]

For evacuees who would like to let their family members, loved ones, friends know that they are safe and well, they are encouraged to register at www.safeandwell.org. This same web site is available for those searching for a missing loved one, family member, friend in a disaster area.
