Get Connected Icon ongoing


Every day The American Red Cross responds to approximately 190 house fires across the country. Because of volunteers like you, we are able to respond to the devastation a house fire can bring within 2 hours of receiving the call that a family is in need.

We are actively recruiting for volunteers who want to be part of our Disaster Action Teams (DAT) in Iowa. DAT members respond to local disasters within 2 hours of notification and assist those affected in securing emergency information and meeting immediate needs. DAT members complete paperwork and report accurate data. DAT members may provide referrals to other agencies to satisfy unmet client needs. 

Full training provided by The American Red Cross Serving Greater Iowa.
