Assist the Red Cross in delivering its mission by alleviating human suffering caused by disasters. Disaster Action Team volunteers assist those affected by local disasters to meet their emergency needs, such as shelter, food and clothing.
Team members schedule themselves on an 'on call' basis, making themselves available to respond within two hours to the disaster scene when notified by emergency personnel or clients. A visual damage assessment is completed in addition to a brief client interview, at which time needed American Red Cross services and community partner referrals are provided.
