Disaster Response Volunteers

Save to Favorites

Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership



Solano Volunteers, a Solano County program implemented by Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership (CVNL), coordinates volunteers during disasters, and coordinates resources to aid disaster relief and recovery efforts. Long-term recovery from disasters takes time, money, strong partnerships and dedicated volunteer effort, and CVNL stands ready to facilitate the provision of resources to those who need it most.

Solano Volunteers has a special role in the event of a local disaster, and we are looking for community members to raise their hands and volunteer to be a part of our Diaster Response team.

Disaster Response volunteers are trained before disaster strikes in order to better handle responsibilities placed upon them. All volunteers receive training to enable active involvement in an Emergency Volunteer Center and Disaster Call Center. Based on interest, volunteers may then take additional training for Supervisory and Leadership roles.

Duties May Include:

Registering, interviewing and matching spontaneous disaster volunteers to appropriate assignments

Providing information to residents

Providing safety briefings as needed

Recording hours, tracking volunteer data, tracking donations, and helping out with logistics as needed

Duties do not include strenuous physical activity

Qualifications:

Ability to work with people

Honest and reliable

Upon completion of the online training, disaster volunteers are asked for a one-year commitment where they stay ready to respond to a disaster in Solano County

Drills and exercises will be conducted annually so volunteers can stay sharp and ready-to-serve when called upon.

Mission Statement

We know that passion alone isn't enough when it comes to creating strong nonprofits. That's why we work with aspiring and established leaders every day to help them build the skills and connections that can take their impact to the next level. With confident and prepared leaders, our nonprofits will be better equipped to create healthy, happy communities. CVNL has engaged individuals in volunteerism continuously for more than 50 years and expanded to Napa county in July 2014. Every day, passionate individuals like you dedicate their work to advancing our communities, vulnerable populations, natural landscapes, and cultural institutions. But without the critical know-how in operational essentials like fundraising, board governance, and volunteer recruitment, their causes may fall short of their potential. CVNL brings local leaders the expert guidance and professional resources they need to build resilient, impactful organizations.
