The American Red Cross Needs Your Expertise!

Calling upon all health professionals, real estate agents, community relations professionals, government relations professionals, boy scouts, and those willing to learn.

Disaster services is currently recruiting volunteers for three specialty areas: Health Services, Partner Services, and Disaster Assessment.

Health Services: Become a leader and part of the Red Cross volunteer team. The Red Cross is looking for active or recently retired RNs LPNs, PAs, MDs, and EMTs. When a disaster hits, these volunteers are called upon to deliver basic healthcare at emergency shelters and on response teams both locally and nationally.

Partner Services: Become an ambassador to the American Red Cross by focusing on Community and Government Relations. During a disaster relief operation, skilled volunteers become a valuable liaison between the Red Cross and local and state non-government and government partners.

Disaster Assessment: We’re recruiting community members who are interested in property assessment and like to read maps, including real estate professionals and boy scouts. When a disaster strikes, be in the field to assess damage to residential structures and help determine delivery of services to disaster survivors.

If you are interested in learning more please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at your local American Red Cross Chapter or the NH Regional Office at 1-800-464-6692.
