As a licensed healthcare professional, you know the importance of quality care. During times of disaster, affected families in emergency shelters need access to basic healthcare. This is only possible through volunteers like you! Online training is free and CE credit are available. Start now to bring quality care to those when they need it the most.

The Red Cross is preparing for another extremely busy disaster season. This year’s wildfire outlook is already very active and dangerous because of the severe drought and dry woodlands across the West.

  • Provide hands on care for shelter clients to include but not limited to assistance with activities of daily living, wound care, incontinence care, assistance with functional needs.
  • Provide health education, health assessments and determination if a higher level of care is needed.
  • Assist clients to replace medications, durable medical equipment, or consumable medical supplies.
