Are you organized and flexible, and do you like to talk on the phone? Would you like to be essential to initiating coordinated assistance during times of disaster? If you answered yes to these questions, then the role of DAT Duty Officer might be something that interests you.
DAT Duty Officers are the lynchpin that holds a Red Cross disaster response together. DAT Duty Officers receive notification from clients and agencies requesting assistance during a fire, flood, or other disasters. They assess the situation and deploy the most appropriate resources to support efforts such as initial casework and recovery planning, canteen services, sheltering, and disaster assessment.
The DAT Duty Officer ensures the response team has the tools, knowledge, and resources they need in order to deliver quality services, all while monitoring the situation and providing support from the comfort of their own home. Shifts are flexible. If interested in this volunteer position, please email Rose Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org or 704-632-5581 to discuss this position further.
