Help Families after Home Fires - Disaster Action Team

Save to Favorites

American Red Cross of Northern California Coastal Region

Logo

The Red Cross responds to a disaster every eight minutes; house fires are usually the major perpetrators of those emergencies. The Red Cross is looking for passionate individuals to become Disaster Action Team (DAT) volunteers.

Red Cross DAT members are second responders who provide food, shelter, and comfort to individuals who have been affected by home fires and other disasters. DAT responders come to the scene after the fire department, and only provide assistance if agreed to by the affected family.

DAT members are needed throughout San Joaquin county today!

Requirements:

  • Availability to be "on-call" for four (4) 12-hour shifts each month.
  • Shifts run 7am-7pm (day team) and 7pm-7am (night team)
  • Volunteers always work in teams of 2 or more
  • When on-call, you can continue regular activities, but must be ready to respond within an hour if called
Caseworkers are also needed to provide follow-up assistance to clients, helping them get back on their feet and connected with local resources.
