Duty Officer volunteers play a key role in disaster response and client service delivery. These volunteers answer the initial phone call requests for assistance and then dispatch Red Cross volunteers to meet with families impacted by home fires and other disasters so they can provide temporary relief such as a safe place to stay, food and clothing. No experience required - all training is provided.

Location: 100% Virtual - you can help during times of disaster from the comfort of your own home!

Volunteer Roles:
  • Provide leadership and guidance by answering initial calls for temporary assistance.
  • Dispatch Disaster Action Team (DAT) volunteers.
  • Monitor disaster response to ensure appropriate resources are made available.
Time Commitment:
  • The DutyOfficer position is broken up into 6-hour shifts where you would be on-call to answer the phone and would need access to a phone and computer.
  • As a volunteer, you will have the ability to sign up for individual shifts that best meet your schedule.

Benefits of volunteering:

  • Gain valuable experience in social work, disaster response, human services, volunteer coordination, emergency management, and incident response.
  • Serve your community by assisting those affected by disasters
