As you are aware, we need to be prepared to deploy at any time.
Volunteers need to meet the following requirements:
- Complete the SBDR Trainings required
- Complete a background check
- Have updated credentials (Required every 3 years)
- Have medical insurance and have completed the personal and medical forms
How Deployment Notices are made:
Once the CBDR State Director receives word of a potential deployment, you will receive an ALERT message. This will be posted on our CBDR Web site www.ColoradoDR.org and you will receive a mass email with pending information available at that time.
- If you respond by email or text that you are interested and available, then you will receive additional emails with more details as we get closer to deploying.
- Your next notice will be a STANDBY notice (this is time to get your bags packed and be ready to deploy at a moment’s notice once we receive the final “GO” or NO GO from officials
- Once we receive the final “GO”, then you will receive all the final details concerning the deployment.
