DISASTER ACTION TEAM volunteers support individuals and families right at home. 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. In this role, you can help comfort and support people in your community by meeting their immediate needs, such as food, shelter, clothing, or supplies, and connecting them to long-term recovery services. We supply all the training you need.
This is great way to give back in your community!
