COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERS

US Life Safety is always looking for community services groups that come together in time of emergencies. These volunteers can be the first ones on the scene to assist local first responders in any way they can. Typically, these groups work closely with their police and fire departments to have a cooperative response plan understood between all.

 

We add volunteer groups here with direct links connected to each logo.  Please  volunteer in your community!

 

We start our list with local SW Pennsylvania Volunteer Fire Departments with whom we are already partnering. CLICK HERE

 

 

Volunteer

The Red Cross mobilizes the power of volunteers to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies. Your local Red Cross could have just the opportunity you’re looking for—from training to respond to disasters to supporting a blood drive—from delivering messages to members of our military to connecting families displaced by conflict.

Red Cross volunteers are united by their service and the feeling that in changing others’ lives, their lives are also changed.

Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT)

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.



The Lions ALERT Program

Lions are continually involved in disaster relief around the world. The Lions ALERT program strives to provide specific direction to the 46,000 Lions clubs and help them to be more efficient in providing short and long term support to disaster victims.

 

The objective of the Lions ALERT Program is to develop a plan of action in case of a Level One (affecting a few people), Level Two (affecting a community) or Level Three emergency (affecting hundreds or thousands of people in a region). The emergency may be a natural disaster, a man-made disaster or a public healthcare crisis such as a large-scale (pandemic) influenza (flu) outbreak.


To develop a Lions ALERT plan, appoint a Lions ALERT chairperson who will assemble a team of volunteers and emergency service professionals.



The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is the UN organization that promotes volunteerism to support peace and development worldwide. Volunteerism can transform the pace and nature of development, and it benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer. UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for volunteerism globally, encouraging partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing volunteers.
UNV is inspired by the conviction that volunteerism is a powerful means of engaging people in tackling development challenges worldwide.  Everyone can contribute their time, skills and knowledge through volunteer action, and their combined efforts can be a significant force for achieving peace and development.

Volunteering makes important economic and social contributions, contributing to a more cohesive society by building trust and reciprocity among citizens. It can be both challenging and rewarding and require you to use your skills in a new context. You can also transfer useful knowledge while gaining a greater understanding of the issues affecting other people.



Volunteer Emergency Support Team (VEST) volunteers assist with managing spontaneous, unaffiliated volunteers by connecting them to community agencies in need during an emergency.

Description:
As part of Volunteer Arlington and a member of Arlington County's Citizen Corps, VEST volunteers directly support the work of Arlington's Emergency Support Function 17: Volunteer & Donations Management.

Train, learn, and apply your knowledge of emergency preparedness. Join VEST and learn how to help coordinate recovery efforts, share information between government and relief agencies, mobilize resources, and rehabilitate devastated communities. Gain skills through exercises, training, and/or assisting members of the community become prepared for disasters.
