Volunteer as a Duty Officer and make a vital impact in local disaster response. As a Duty Officer, you'll be the first point of contact for individuals in our region seeking assistance by answering initial calls and dispatching local Red Cross volunteers to support families affected by home fires and other disasters. Your efforts will ensure that those in need receive essential temporary relief, including safe shelter, food, and clothing. No prior experience is necessary-comprehensive training will be provided.

Location: 100% virtual - you can help during times of disaster from the comfort of your own home!

Time Commitment:

  • The Duty Officer position is broken up into 6-hour shifts where you would be on-call to answer the phone and would need access to a computer. Ideally, we ask that volunteers be willing to take one shift per week with a six-month commitment.
  • Shift Hours: 12am-6am, 6am-12pm, 12pm-6pm, 6pm-12am. As a volunteer you will have the ability to sign-up for the days and times that work best for you!
