    Hello. I didn’t see Chaplain training listed. Will there be training at the Roundtable this year? Thanks.

    • Rich,
      Thanks for the question, sorry for the delay in my reply.
      This page contains several training manuals for various D.R. training segments. Not all of the segments are being offered at Roundtable. The manuals listed here are listed here year round for whenever training is offered as well as for review prior to a deployment and serve as a readily accessible resource during deployment in case a volunteer did not bring his or her training material to the incident.
      Blessings, and thank you for seeking training and for volunteering!

    Training Manual….we clicked on the 2007 Chaplain Manual, no training manual showing. Just shows a picture of SBDR. Is there another site ?

    • Hi Tilly! Thanks for asking about the Chaplain Manual. You clicked on the right spot but it sounds like your browser did not download all 93 pages of that PDF for some reason. While it is there for download, sometimes a local computer or the browser, or even a slow internet connection, can create issues with the download even though that file is only less than 1 Meg. Please try again, maybe from a different browser (Edge, IE, Chrome, FireFox, Safari, etc).
      I will be updating that with a newer version today anyway, so please do a refresh on your browser after 4:00pm today to get the newer 2016 version. 🙂 Excited that you guys will be taking the training!
