This ministry challenges the physical, mental and spiritual faculties of all who partake in it. Students are prepared for disaster response through intense training, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) certification, Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT), a FEMA program. Students are involved in training others in disaster response as well as conducting mock disaster drills. Students have the opportunity to serve with federal, state and local disaster response agencies such as FEMA and non-governmental organizations.
The opportunity to interface with the public in such a personal way, develops compassion, sympathy and stirs within the student’s heart a desire to serve.
