Join us to answer the call when your neighbors need help.
Most of the 60,000 emergencies that the Red Cross responds to each year are local, personal disasters like home fires. They may not make the news, but we know they are just as devastating to the families affected. Disaster Action Team volunteers are ready to respond to these emergencies, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. From offering a shoulder to cry on, to meeting any immediate needs for shelter or supplies, to connecting people with long term recovery services, our volunteers ensure that families don’t have to face tough times alone.
Disaster Action Team volunteers help local families cope with home fires and other emergencies.
Home fires and other disasters can occur any time, any place. As a Disaster Action Team volunteer, you’ll provide emotional support, financial assistance, and information to help families begin the process of recovery. After your initial training, you will be able to sign up for shifts, which will include following up with individuals and families (remotely, via phone) to provide comfort and emergency assistance.
Shifts are available 7 days/week, 365 days/year, and flexible. Training is provided. Please note this opportunity is virtual with the option to be in-person.
