Specialized Disaster Training Held for Case Managers

About 25 area case managers attended a three-day training program put on by the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) in Springfield, VT, last week. Led by disaster relief professionals, this program provided training for our long-term response to Tropical Storm Irene. Participating case managers learned specific information about resources such as FEMA (the Federal Emergency Management Agency) that will help them better meet the needs of our neighbors who were affected by Irene.
