American Red Cross - Central Florida & USVI

We’re preparing for another extremely busy disaster season, and it’s critical to have a trained, ready volunteer workforce to make sure we can provide relief at a moment’s notice. This year’s wildfire season is already very active and dangerous because of the severe drought and dry woodlands across the west. And experts are predicting we could see 10 or more hurricanes with winds anywhere from 74 to 111 miles per hour.

  • Licensed healthcare professionals needed! With predictions for a very active hurricane and wildfire season, disaster victims need your expert care and comfort. Training is free and CE credit is available. For those able to travel outside of their local area, we request a commitment of at least 10 consecutive days, with shifts of 8 or 12 hours each (we'll provide travel accommodations). Licenses required: RN, LPN, LVN, EMT, Paramedic, MD, DO, PA, NP, APRN. It’s the hardest job you will ever love!

  • Are you a licensed healthcare professional? If so, we also have a high need for health care workers to provide assistance and healthcare to shelter residents as needed. Free online training will be provided and allow you to obtain your CE credits. If the need arises, volunteers are asked to commit to multiple local shifts of 4, 8, or 12 hours each. Licenses required: RN, LPN, LVN, EMT, Paramedic, MD, DO, PA, NP, APRN. Apply or learn more here.
