Primary Duties

Emergency Management Volunteer Opportunities

Our volunteers perform a wide variety of tasks, both during emergencies and as routine work. Tasks may include membership in the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), Amateur Radio Emergency Communications, Public Education, and general office duties. Some work is done at events throughout the city before the emergencies and some will be done during and immediately after the event. Volunteers are assigned meaningful tasks based on training, experience, and interest.

***At this time, we are only seeking individuals who could join our Emergency Communications Team. Candidates would need to have their Amateur Radio License to qualify.***
