VOLUNTEERING

  • DO NOT GO TO THE SCENE OF A DISASTER
  • At this point, volunteers are not needed
  • The arrival of unexpected volunteers will interfere with response efforts
  • STAY SAFE by volunteering with a reputable agency!
  • Volunteers will be needed most during the recovery phase.
  • Please be patient and WAIT until relief agencies can train you and use your help
