Are You Ready to Help When the Next Disaster Strikes?
The IEEE-USA MOVE Community Outreach Initiative has been positively impacting the southeastern US through participation in disaster relief efforts and STEM education events. All MOVE volunteers need to go through training, and you will have that opportunity at IEEE SoutheastCon 2019 in Huntsville, AL.
On Thursday, April 11 (8:30-6:00), you can attend a special one-day Red Cross Disaster Services Technology 101 class, taught by a Red Cross instructor – this course normally takes several weeks! For those of you that have taken the DST 101 class in the past, it is an annual requirement. Therefore you can join the class part-way through at 11:00 am to get a refresher certification.
On Sunday, April 14, the MOVE Truck Systems Training will be held, from 9:00-5:00. This is a great opportunity to prepare now so you can help with a future disaster, or use the MOVE truck for a STEM event!
There is no cost to participate in the training, however, travel expenses will not be covered by the Region or by MOVE. If you are already planning on being at SoutheastCon on Thursday or are staying late Sunday, or if you live in the Huntsville area, you should especially consider taking advantage of this opportunity to train, as it will add no additional cost.
