About

Franklin County LOSS (Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors) is seeking volunteers to receive training and join the team. We are looking to increase our First Responder program with reliable and passionate volunteers.

The First Responder team requires two roles for the program to be able to provide support for survivors of suicide loss immediately or soon after their loss through working with the coroner's office. The two roles needed for our First Responder program are:

  • On-call Phone Dispatcher
  • On-call First Responders (we respond in teams of two and teams always include a survivor of suicide loss.
  • *We have a critical need for qualified volunteers to be available on weekdays. Even one weekday a week would be greatly helpful*

The Phone Dispatcher volunteer opportunity can be fulfilled virtually - no physical presence needed -- but must reside in central Ohio.

The team is in need of volunteers to be available by telephone for a designated period to receive calls from the Coroner’s office. The Volunteer LOSS Phone Dispatcher captures critical data from the Coroner's office and dispatches 2-3 LOSS Team members to the scene.

This role requires good organizational and communication skills to serve a vital function in providing service to newly bereaved survivors.

This role also requires an understanding of the geography of Columbus and neighboring suburbs.

To learn more or volunteer with LOSS, email sarah@franklincountyloss.org or register for our next volunteer information session.

We will be hosting a Volunteer Information Session on Tuesday, August 7 from 6PM-8PM in our office. You can register to attend by clicking on the link in this email.
