ORGANIZATION: American Red Cross

  • 2 people are interested
Volunteers are heroes

Natural and human-caused disasters occur every day, reminding us how vulnerable we can be. The American Red Cross takes action every day to serve people affected by disasters, rushing to the aid of a family, a neighborhood or an entire community.

Disaster Action Team (DAT) members respond locally to all disasters whenever they occur day or night. DAT members commit to being on-call and available for defined shifts so that when an emergency occurs either a dispatcher or the Disaster Program Manager can reach them and dispatch them immediately. DAT members meet with family members to determine their immediate, disaster-caused needs.

General Disaster Responders respond to larger scale disasters either on a regional, state or national basis. Volunteers choose when they are available to deploy to a disaster response and commit to at least two weeks. General Disaster Responders work in one or more specialized activities such as feeding or sheltering.

You have the power to make an impact in your community and touch lives every day.
