During a disaster, we may quickly be overwhelmed with the amount of donations (physical donations and monetary donations) during and after a disaster. In the age of social media and the ability to get media coverage anytime of the day, we will receive increased numbers of donations to the community wanting to offer their assistance. We must be prepared to received them at a Donations Management site. Below is the course description and registration link to register. We are limited to 50 seats and this course will fill up quickly.
