UBS Volunteer Socials & Trainings

Find details here about upcoming socials and trainings. The social meet ups are a way to get to know each other, learn more about different areas and departments, so bring yourself and maybe a friend to get introduced to some new folks and the ins and outs of volunteering at a burn event.

Some volunteer roles require attending a training session prior to the event. For questions, please email the corresponding area/department contact address or email

2-Day Incident Command System 100 Refresher course in-person at Houston Burners warehouse. Expect a two-part coverage Monday Feb 27th 8-10pm and Tuesday Feb 28th 8-10pm. Instructors are Clover & Epic Fail. The reason it’s a refresher is the only way to actually get the certification is to engage FEMA’s self-training module on the topic. So we can cover materials (ie, refresh people) but not certify. So even if it’s fresh to you, it’s a refresher, feel free to jump in.
