DAT: Disaster Action Team-Trainee 

Disaster Action Teams (DAT) provide 24-hour emergency response to local disasters, particularly house fires, ensuring that those affected have access to resources for basic necessities such as food, shelter and clothing.  

  

We are looking for compassionate individuals that want to help families that are affected by disasters of all sizes, from home fires to hurricanes. The bulk of our responses are home fires. We need people who are patient and are good listeners.  

DAT Responders need to be able to do initial casework virtually, including over the phone and using video conferencing. We will provide training as to how to use the software, but you need to have access to a smartphone and or computer for this role and be comfortable with technology.  

 If you are new to Red Cross as a volunteer, you can start the registration process by going to www.redcross.org/volunteer click on “Find My Volunteer Opportunity, enter your zip code, and click on “Search by Key Word of Title,” and search *DAT: Disaster Action Team-Trainee, and fill out an online application. We require a background check for all volunteers, so you will need to upload a picture of your driver’s license. After you fill out your application, keep an eye out for an email to schedule a phone interview.  

Please reach out to ENCrecruit@redcross.org if you have any questions at all. We are here to make sure the process is as smooth as possible!  

There will be occasional opportunities to respond in person, so we need DAT responders who are willing to respond in person. Responders who go in person must follow all COVID-19 protocols, including Cover-Distance-Clean.  

Our volunteers are “on call” and must be able to commit to scheduled shifts.  

Sign up today! Visit www.redcross.org/volunteertoday
