Red Cross Disaster Relief volunteers support people affected by home fires, storms, and countless other crises. As more people rely on the Red Cross for help, the need for compassionate Disaster Relief volunteers has never been greater.

There are two positions - one is for local, year-round response and the other is for large-scale disaster response occurring anywhere in the country.

DISASTER RELIEF VOLUNTEERS

Year-Round Disaster Action Team (DAT) Member: Provide year-round, in-person emergency response to individuals impacted by local disasters (primarily home fires). Volunteers provide emergency financial assistance, emotional support, and connection to Red Cross and community resources to support client recovery.

  • Time Commitment: On-call at least 6-8 shifts each month. The length of a shift varies by county but is typically 6-12 hours.


Disaster Shelter Volunteer:
During large-scale disasters, support the day-to-day activities within a shelter. This may include reception, registration, feeding, or other areas with a shelter.

Time Commitment:

  • Local (within 60 miles): Multiple local shifts of 4-12 hours each
  • Outside the Region/Deployment: Minimum of 14 days working 10-12 hour shifts (the Red Cross arranges travel and pays expenses).
