Red Cross disaster volunteers turn heartbreak into hope every day. Volunteers help those affected by house fires, storms, tornadoes, floods, and other disasters with food, shelter, supplies, and hope.
Disasters occur every year, whether a house fire that impacts only one family, or a huge storm that affects a whole city. Recovery takes not only the dedication of Red Cross Disaster Responders, but the holistic partnerships within the community.
Red Cross Disaster Responders train in a variety of different areas including casework, sheltering, feeding, supply distribution, damage assessment, logistics, etc.
In between responses, these volunteers work on community partnerships and readiness simulations to strengthen the resiliency of the community.
Examples of these include identifying shelter sites, establishing agreements with restaurants, maintaining relationships with fire departments, setting up a shelter exercise, conducting inventory checks, etc.

Access to transportation to various worksites.
