LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — There's an opportunity for you to help people in Tippecanoe County or across the country. All you need to do is attend training happening at the Salvation Army in Lafayette on Jan 12.

Lt. Rachel Johnson said they are looking to expand their Emergency Disaster Services Team. This crisis management system lets everyone know their role when responding to a disaster. 

During training, volunteers will learn how they can assist emergency responders in different situations.

"We're teaching our team what those positions are and kind of what we can do when we report to a disaster," Johnson said.

If you did not make it to the first training session, contact Lt. Johnson at the Salvation Army. The number is 765-742-0006. 

The next session is being held Saturday, Jan. 12 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you would like to participate, sign up by Thursday, Jan 10.

"We want to be consistent by providing support to Tippecanoe County residents who are experiencing disaster," said Johnson. "It's very important that we have people who are available and willing and want to respond to disasters."
