ORGANIZATION: American Red Cross of Missouri and Arkansas

logo

Every day people are forced from their homes due to disasters. Single and multi-family fires account for 90% of disaster responses for the American Red Cross. Compassionate and committed Disaster Action Team (DAT) volunteers respond day and night to meet the immediate needs of their neighbors.

Respond on-scene with other Red Cross volunteers to house fires, flooding, or other local disasters to provide resources, comfort and hope to the family members who have been affected. During COVID, how we respond may look a little different, but the fact is, we still carry out our mission every day. We are now practicing social distancing, wearing masks, and the use of hand sanitizer in order to keep everyone safe.

All training is done online and volunteer must be comfortable completing online training and online meetings with disaster dept.
