Constructive way to help people

19 Replies

I just joined Team Rubicon, a non profit organization started by vets and EMS responders to help with emergency response and recovery.

I'm one that can't afford a covid exposure (whatever I had at the end of January came close to getting me as it is) but I want to do something helpful, so I signed up, as they specifically have tasks you can do remotely.

I just finished their introductory and basic training online (which includes completing IS 100 and 700, incident system training, which takes about 6-7 hours), and am calling in today to get my background check underway. Shouldn't be a problem, I've passed them for work several times.

Once I get the BG check started, I can sign up to do things and i can also take more of their training online.

I really really need to feel - no, to BE - useful right now.

Well done, that sounds great.

I really hope that one day I can feel useful again. I hate not being able to work or volunteer.

I hope it all goes well for you. You are a great inspiration. 🙂🌸

That sounds such a good thing to do Wallowa and more so if you are able to be of assistance remotely and so keep yourself safe. I'm sure your efforts will be well appreciated by many!👍😊🙏

That's brilliant Wallowa! I've actually never heard of them but they sound amazing! If now is not the time to be pulling together and getting things done, I can't imagine there is ever going to be a time!

while I wait for an action to support I'm taking online training. Just went through incident planning training introduction - next step is to review it one more time and take the exam (not a big test, just part of completing it).
