While big hurricanes and wildfires get the most news coverage, smaller disasters are no less devastating to the families affected. Most of the 60,000 emergencies that the Red Cross responds to each year are smaller disasters like home fires. As a Disaster Action Team volunteer, you can help comfort and support people in your community by meeting any immediate needs such as food, shelter, clothing or supplies and connecting them to long term recovery services. We supply all the training you need.
Safety first! Those with unconfirmed vaccinations must wear a mask for all in-person work. Masks must also be worn at all shelters.
Time Expectations: Sign up for on-call shifts that work with your schedule.
Thank you for your interest in serving the American Red Cross!
