Do you lead volunteers or community groups? Do you enjoy working with people? Your skills can help in an emergency.
When a major emergency happens, many people put their hands up to help. Support your community to harness the power of these volunteers in relief and recovery efforts. The Managers of Spontaneous Emergency Volunteers (MSEV) program trains, supports, deploys and debriefs a volunteer workforce of skilled volunteer managers during an emergency.
After the MSEV training, you will know how to:
- Manage and support spontaneous volunteers in an emergency context
- Work within the chaotic environment of an emergency situation
- Recognise techniques for dealing with people in distress.
This training forms part of the application process to become an MSEV. Information on how to apply is given at the end of the session.

MSEV training is developed and delivered in collaboration with Australian Red Cross.
