Disaster Action Team (DAT) members are a group of on-call Red Cross volunteers who are sent to local disasters (typically home fires) to provide immediate disaster relief to those affected.
The Disaster Action Team (DAT) serves as the first, on-the-scene, Red Cross contact at the site of a disaster. While not considered first responders in the technical sense, DAT members are typically the first people at a disaster scene who provide comfort and direct assistance to help those who have been affected as they begin the recovery process.
