California Volunteers will be providing the first of several Training Classes that will provide operational and functional training for the new State of California Disaster Volunteer Network (DVN) web based volunteer management platform.
This first class is for representatives from the following three agencies:
Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department
The Los Angeles County Fire Department
City of Norwalk (Area E).
These three agencies have committed to the initial phase of the DVN project and currently have an Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) with the County Office of Emergency Management and California Volunteers.
Volunteer Coordinators, Emergency Managers, and Supervisors from within these agencies who have supervisory responsibility and/or coordination and oversight of volunteers within the listed three agencies should attend this training.
The DVN is geared for providing a method for government agencies to manage their volunteers that are classified as California State Disaster Corps volunteers, consisting of one or more skill sets and comply with agency and state screening procedures.
Attendees will understand the process in gaining access to the DVN access portal and be provided a basic understanding of the DVN operation, security and access controls. Attendees will also gain an understanding of Agency, Operational Area, and State access levels and how the DVN can assist in mutual aid response plans where affiliated and trained volunteers are needed locally and throughout the state.
