Tennessee DR Training Facts:

  • All volunteers must be 18 years old to serve.
  • All volunteers must be a member of a cooperating Tennessee Southern Baptist church.
  • In order to be fully credentialed, you must take at least one specialized classroom training (e.g. chainsaw, flood recovery, mass feeding, shower/laundry, etc.) and the “Introduction to Southern Baptist Disaster Relief” course.
  • Disaster Relief credentials and the yellow hat/visor will be given after “Introduction to Southern Baptist Disaster Relief” and specialized classes have been taken.


Because of directives from Homeland Security, FEMA and other national agencies related to the training and screening of volunteer disaster relief workers, there is a cost recovery plan. The cost of a new 3 year (ID badge) credential is $36.00 (for newly trained volunteers or those that had credentials that expire in 2020). The new badge will expire in three years.  Payment can be either by cash or check to Tennessee Baptist Mission Board or TBMB.
