Become a Human Services Volunteer and Be a Part of Their
Emergency Team

It has been a while since we have seen the direct impacts of a hurricane, but this year the experts say that might change with an expected busy season. If shelters are needed, our colleagues in Human Services are front and center, making sure the facilities are equipped, open and safe. To do that, they need our help to serve as volunteers. What’s involved? Just a bit of training and commitment. Volunteer at a shelter or be a laborer. An effective shelter worker will need to do an inventory of supplies, assist the visually impaired, orient sheltered residents and work directly with the Red Cross. The shelter position requires completion of FEMA’s Incident Command System (ICS) online courses ICS 100, 200 and 700. The Laborer position will be responsible for loading and unloading supply trucks at shelters. All volunteers are required take a two-hour training course on Tuesday, August 6. Shelter training is from 10 a.m. until noon, and labor training is 1 to 3 p.m. Sign up for the training through the Learning Center and be a part of the team!
