The American Red Cross Northwest Region relies heavily on volunteers. In fact, about 90 percent of its disaster workforce are volunteers. Volunteers serve in a variety of roles to help communities respond to and recover from disasters.

Disaster Action Team volunteers primarily respond to single-family home fires, the agency’s most common type of disaster response. Mass Care Sheltering teams ensure people impacted by disaster have a safe place to sleep in Red Cross shelters. Disaster Assessment teams review damages and impacts to begin providing casework and recovery support. Finally, the Red Cross has specialized roles for health professionals in its Disaster Health Services and Disaster Mental Health activities.
