Help Your Neighbor in Their Greatest Time of Need - Be a Disaster Responder in Sedalia, MO

American Red Cross of Missouri and Arkansas

Every day people are forced from their home 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 of masks and the use of hand sanitizer in order to keep everyone safe.
