Volunteer for The American Red Cross (Richmond, IN): Disaster Action team (posted 8/13/2018)
Where: 829 E. Main Street, Richmond, IN
What: Disaster Action Team: The American Red Cross strives to send two volunteer responders to the scene to help with immediate needs like food, clothing, and shelter. This is a critical need where volunteers can make a tremendous impact by being a part of our responder team, which can be scheduled one 24-hour shift a month or more. Responders are “on call” and dispatched just like the fire department. Responders go through a series of online training as well as learning the role by being paired initially with a seasoned volunteer. Response teams are always pairs of two; so, volunteers can coordinate to respond with their friends or make new ones with other Red Cross Volunteers. Time commitment varies based on whether there is a disaster to respond to on a given shift. Volunteers can also sign up to follow up over the phone with clients who have experienced a disaster. Great for those who need a more flexible opportunity, and follow up calls can be done from home.
