spontaneous volunteer management training

The purpose of the Spontaneous Volunteer Management Training is to provide local municipalities with best practices and materials, in order to prepare local communities to handle the management of spontaneous or unaffiliated volunteers in times of disasters (SVM). This training will also allow local municipalities the opportunity to self identify with the state those individuals that are prepared to manage spontaneous volunteers if a larger event were to occur where their skill sets could be called upon.

For more information or to be put on a waiting list for future Spontaneous Volunteer Management Trainings, contact Jacob at jacobjohnson@utah.gov. These trainings are being conducted in coordination with DEM and the Utah Volunteer and Donations Coordination team (VDCT).
