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 email@example.com.
