Wildfire Shelter Team Member

The American Red Cross has an urgent need for shelter workers. During wildfire season in Northern California, this need is critical now more than ever. 

When a fire or other disaster threatens homes, the Red Cross sets up shelters to ensure our community members have a safe place to stay. Shelter workers support the day-to-day activities within a shelter which may include assisting with reception & registration, ensuring meals are set up, helping with dormitory needs, disseminating information, and providing comfort when it is needed most. 

Ideal volunteers will be able to help in a Red Cross shelter for at least 5 consecutive days if a shelter opens in the local community. During these 5 days, shifts will be 12 hours long (both daytime or evening shifts available). 4 hours of virtual, self-paced training will be taken beforehand.
