MHCC schedules disaster training
MHCC honor society plans disaster training
Mt. Hood Community College's honor society will host a free American Red Cross certification training to prepare people to serve as Red Cross volunteers during disaster situations.
The training will be from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, April 14, in MHCC's Student Union, AC1001, 26000 S.E. Stark St.
MHCC's Phi Theta Kappa honor society chapter, Rho Theta, has spent the last six months focused on teaching about disaster preparedness as part of the chapter's annual service training project.
"We want people to ask themselves, 'Am I ready for a fire, flood or earthquake if it were to hit home?'" said student Brenna Schmidt, a Rho Theta officer. "'How would I support my neighbors and community?' One way is by becoming Red Cross certified."
The one-day training will certify people to serve as Red Cross volunteers. Trainees also will have the option of completing Red Cross first aid training.
