New to disaster response? Join us for our monthly meetings, fourth Wednesday of each month. Hear about upcoming local field experience training sessions, guest speakers, fellowship and more.
Disaster Response at Northland are teams that train for and respond to disasters, complementing and supporting government and emergency agencies as they respond to communities in need. Teams feed survivors and first responders and assist with a variety of medical, personal and community needs. For training purposes and to serve our local community, teams regularly participate in community outreach activities.
