American Red Cross of Northern California Coastal Region

Logo

The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.

When a disaster, such as a wildfire, strikes our community, the Red Cross is there to help. The role of a Red Cross Disability Integration Worker is to ensure that all Red Cross shelters and other service delivery sites, as well as all programs, services and communications are equally accessible to all clients, including those with disabilities and others with access and functional needs.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Assessing evacuation and post-evacuation shelters for accessibility and assisting with solutions of noted issues.
  • Coordinating with governmental and community partners, other functions and activities to meet the disaster-related access and functional needs of individuals, families, and communities.
  • Training the disaster workforce on supporting clients and co-workers with disabilities and others with access and functional needs.
  • Providing feedback on disaster impact and community recovery, collecting essential elements of information.

Qualifications:

  • Good organizational skills, responsible, and punctual.
  • Active listening skills.
  • Ability to interact with community members in a clear, compassionate manner.
  • Ability to involve appropriate others in managing problems and conflict.
  • Commitment to maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of clients.
  • Ability to speak clearly on phone or in person.

Time Commitment: 8-12 hours per day during times of disaster response for multiple, consecutive days. (In other words, this person is expected to stand up on disaster operations when their local territory is impacted and potentially provide support for regional events.) Time commitment is flexible when there is no disaster.
