The American Red Cross in Nevada collaborates with a variety of partners to deliver services to those affected by disasters such as home fires and floods. The Nevada state government is one of those partners. We are looking for volunteers who are willing to be trained in our government operations program and act as a liaison between the Red Cross and the state government during a disaster response. You will help ensure the Red Cross and our government partners are on the same page, work directly with emergency management agencies in Nevada, and assist with our government relations program.
This work is currently being done virtually, and the time commitment will generally be 5-10 hours per month after your training is completed (but may require more work during major disaster relief operations). If you are interested in learning more about, or have a background in, emergency management, community relations, disaster relief, and public relations, this would be an excellent opportunity!
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.
Every single day, the American Red Cross helps people in emergencies. Whether its one displaced family, thousands of disaster victims, or providing care and comfort to an ill or injured service member or veteran or support to a military family member, our vital work is made possible by people like you. It is through the time and care of ordinary people that we can do extraordinary things.
