Help the Red Cross respond to local disasters
American Red Cross - Central Appalachia Region

Our urgent need for Disaster Action Team (DAT) members includes all of these areas.
As a DAT volunteer, you will help your community when a home fire or other disaster occurs. Virtual disaster response has been implemented. If a virtual response is not possible, DAT response procedures will require maintaining social distancing (6 feet apart) and provide materials to the client without direct personal contact.
Requirements and Commitment: Must be age 18+, commit to 24 on-call volunteer hours per month and training to serve in the role.
Other volunteer positions within our Disaster volunteer team include assessing the emergency and dispatching appropriately, follow up case work, mental health, health and spiritual services.
