ORGANIZATION: AMERICAN NATIONAL RED CROSS

DISPATCHER FOR DISASTER RESPONSE

Opportunity available within the state of Pennsylvania

The American Red Cross responds to local home fires and disasters throughout PA. Our dispatchers work from home to dispatch our team who helps provide resources and support to clients during their time of hardship.

Disaster Duty Officers play a very important role when the American Red Cross provides assistance to those affected by disasters. They are the first and single point of contact from emergency service organizations when the request for assistance is made.

DAT Duty Officers are the lynchpin that holds a Red Cross disaster response together. DAT Duty Officers receive notification from clients and agencies requesting assistance during a fire, flood, or other disasters. They assess the situation and deploy the most appropriate resources to support efforts such as initial casework and recovery planning, canteen services, sheltering, and disaster assessment.

The DAT Duty Officer ensures the response team has the tools, knowledge, and resources they need in order to deliver quality services, all while monitoring the situation and providing support from the comfort of their own home.

Online training required. Candidates should be comfortable with use of computer and cellphone
