    New, FREE disaster crisis management resource

    If the disasters of recent years have taught us anything, it’s that trained volunteers have the power to make a massive difference in the lives of those affected.

    To that point, DisasterReady.org has been established by the Cornerstone OnDemand Foundation to “increase the preparedness and effectiveness of humanitarian aid workers by making training more accessible and affordable.”

    Featuring free state of the art e-learning courses in subjects like safety and security, disaster assessment, and how to maintain your own health and well-being in the field, DisasterReady.org is an asset not only to volunteer agencies, but any organization looking to bolster its crisis management capabilities.

    In a world where training frequently means big bucks, resources like Disaster Ready are doing an amazing thing in making such in-depth resources available for free. Take advantage, and start getting disaster ready today.
