For more than 100 years, American Red Cross volunteers have provided comfort, care, hope, and direct assistance to members of our Northern Nevada community affected by home fires and other disasters. We have an urgent need for new Disaster Action Team members in Lyon County to be trained and ready to provide Red Cross assistance when disaster strikes. All training and assistance resources are provided, and the time commitment is flexible. Many DAT responses are taking place virtually, and when they are not, strict social distancing and safety guidelines are in place. You can watch videos and learn more at https://www.redcross.org/DAT
Disaster Action Teams provide 24-hour emergency response to local disasters, particularly house fires, ensuring that those affected have access to resources for basic necessities such as food, shelter and clothing.
Follow and execute requests received from supervisor with little or no supervision.
Adapt to change, negotiate compromise and tolerate ambiguity.
Build effective relationships with others who can help with work-related goals.
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.
We'll work with your schedule.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
