Overview & Summary
The HFI Disaster Response Training Intensive includes two days of preparation for domestic service with HFI. The training is required to be qualified as a Hope Force Reservist - eligible for rapid deployment - often with 24 - 48 hours following a disaster event. The training includes live speakers, as well as teaching filmed exclusively for Hope Force.
The program covers the following topics to prepare the Reservist for the spiritual and practical dynamics of disaster response:
- Identity in Christ for the disaster responder
- Foundations of emotional and spiritual care (ESC)
- Maintaining healthy and cohesive relationships on deployment
- Team-building and conflict resolution
- Core principles for effective ministry
- How to be appropriate caregivers
- What to expect when responding
- Disaster response principles
Upon successful completion of the training, graduates will be certified as Hope Force Reservists, eligible for rapid deployment with Hope Force International.

Extended Training and Preparedness:
We strongly recommend that all Reservists take First Aid/ CPR. Most cities or communities around the country provide training for their citizens in these basic skills. Hope Force also recommends at least two designated Salvation Army* courses following the HFI Training Intensive course:
- Introduction to Disaster Services
- Training for Mobile Feeding Units and Social Services
- First Aid/ CPR (with certification)
*HFI and the Salvation Army have been national partners since 2005, and often work together across the United States and at times, internationally.
