Disaster Services

Responding to the disaster requires quick thinking and standardized operations. Volunteers who wish to respond both locally and nationally must be trained in advance, as there is little time for training during the disaster. Classes are structured for advancement into American Red Cross groups and activities. When a disaster happens, we call on those who are trained to perform specific functions.

The West Virginia Region holds free disaster services training courses throughout the state. You need to be registered Red Cross volunteer or local disaster partner to attend.
