LOCAL RESPONSE HELP NEEDED Disaster Action Team (DAT) volunteers help families with their immediate needs after a fire in their home and offer support during a very difficult time. As a DAT team member, you will provide emotional support, access to financial assistance and information to help families begin to recover. DAT team members respond to emergencies to provide immediate compassion and care. Training will be provided.
“Our Red Cross volunteers support their community and neighbors in need each and every day by responding to local emergencies,” said Aaron McIntire, Regional Disaster Officer, American Red Cross Northern New England Region. “We need more help so no one faces this heartbreaking situation alone.”
In New Hampshire, we are seeking 31 disaster volunteers in the following areas to meet the current need:
- Conway (6), Laconia (4), North Country (4), Plymouth (5), Keene (6) and Seacoast (6).
COVID-19 AND STAYING SAFE The need for volunteers is constant and continues to evolve as the Red Cross navigates the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The safety of everyone is our top priority and our guidelines reflect the latest CDC safety recommendations. COVID-19 vaccination is required for in-person volunteer roles beginning February 15, 2022. When considering volunteer opportunities, review the CDC guidance for people who are at higher risk for severe illness, consult your health care provider and follow local guidance.
Please consider joining the Red Cross as a volunteer today and bring help and hope to people in need. Vaccination verification required for in-person roles. Note: this does not apply where contrary to current state or local regulations. Find out more at redcross.org/volunteertoday.
