Disaster Action Team members assist our local people in times of fires, floods, and other emergency situations. Join the Team today!
People affected by disaster need to know that they have a place to stay, food to eat and emotional support as they take the first steps to recovery.
Each year, the American Red Cross responds immediately to more than 70,000 disasters, including house or apartment fires, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, hazardous materials spills, transportation accidents, explosions, and other natural and man-made disasters. Red Cross volunteers provide relief to victims of these disasters and help people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies. The American Red Cross is recruiting volunteers interested in helping their friends, families, and neighbors in need.
With expertise in meeting the human needs associated with disasters, we are integrated into state and local government agency disaster planning exercise and response efforts. We partner with local, state and federal governments; community organizations; and corporate supporters to provide emergency shelter, food and health and mental health services as well as resources and referrals to aid in recover.
