Imagine being awaken by smoke alarms in the middle of the night. You rush to get your family out to safety now that your home is engulfed in flames. You’re now standing outside of your house in your pajamas in the middle of the night with nowhere to go. Who do you call? The American Red Cross!
What is it?
The Disaster Duty Officer is the first person to be contacted after a disaster (typically a house fire) has happened. Their role is to verify the disaster has happened and then coordinating other volunteers who will then call the family affected.
