Michael, I am assuming you are a member of SEAOC. You need to contact your section to find out when they will be having another training session. For your information, the criteria for being a "volunteer" has not changed, however, a new training program is being developed. There is consideration being given to making it a "long distance" learning program (i.e., over the internet). Another thought has been to provide the program on CD to companies and have them training their staff. The difficulty in both of these approaches is the actual registration as a Disaster Service Worker. In relation to your comment regarding "...charging us volunteers for the right to give up our time and volunteer," understand that there are costs to the organizations for putting on the program. The programs are very inexpensive compared to a seminar. For as long as I was involved in the program for OES all organizations were encouraged to keep costs for the programs low. However, they do have expenses and you will either pay for it at the time, or through higher dues. Just think of all the good feelings you get from helping people who need your assistance at a time when they don't know which way to turn. Those good feelings have to be worth something. Rick Ranous
