Each year, the American Red Cross responds immediately to more than 67,000 nationwide disasters, including house or apartment fires
(the majority of disaster responses), hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, hazardous materials spills, transportation accidents, explosions, and other natural and man-made disasters.

Last year, disaster volunteers helped the victims of over 150 Mid-Michigan disasters. Events such as fires, explosions, wind storms, power outages and train derailments put nearly 1,000 community members in need of groceries, clothing, basic household items, medicines and temporary housing.

Eighty-five trained Mid-Michigan chapter volunteers spent at least three weeks responding to national disasters such as forest fires, floods and hurricanes.

Generous support from the community helped the Red Cross provide assistance free of charge to all victims of disasters.

Staff and volunteers are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to assist families who have been affected by single family fires, floods, tornadoes, etc. Caseworkers help families with immediate needs and work to develop a permanent recovery plan utilizing Red Cross assistance and community resources.

The minimum requirements to join a local Disaster Action Team are:

Introduction to Disaster Services, First Aid and CPR Certification and Disaster Action Team Orientation- these courses are offered frequently at the American Red Cross.

To volunteer or find out more about disaster services, please contact a
Disaster Management Team member or Rachelle Wood, the Emergency Response Coordinator at 517-484-7461 or 1-888-TAP HELP (1-888-827-4357).
