Volunteer opportunities

After natural disasters, relief agencies often rely on the help of volunteers. However, most agencies require that volunteers undergo specific training before they are deployed. If you're interested in volunteering, contact the American Red Cross, Salvation Army or other relief agency prior to a storm to help ensure that you're registered and trained to volunteer after a disaster.
