Volunteering in Disaster

Thank you for your interest in helping our community prepare for or recover from a disaster or weather event. The best way you can help is to be part of an organized effort that is working in coordination with local emergency response officials.

Do not go to the scene of the disaster/weather event. The arrival of unexpected volunteers will interfere with response efforts. You could unsuspectingly put yourself and others at greater risk. Volunteers will be needed most during the recovery phase. Please be patient and wait until community-based organizations are ready to receive your help.
