Red Cross seeks volunteers

Did you know preparing your community before a disaster is part of the mission of the American Red Cross? As a community preparedness volunteer, you can help educate individuals, families and communities on actions to reduce the risk of a disaster and prepare to respond effectively and cope with disasters when they happen.

The American Red Cross of Western Kentucky is seeking compassionate and committed individuals to help with the following efforts:

  • In-home smoke alarm installation and fire safety education visits.
  • Youth programs delivered to children that provide science-based disaster education and coping skills.
  • Community preparedness education opportunities like hands-only CPR or providing disaster education presentations.

Want to put your compassion into action? Join the American Red Cross disaster action team! The American Red Cross of Western Kentucky is seeking compassionate and committed individuals to join our disaster action team.

Every day, people are forced from their home due to fires, storms or other disasters. Our disaster action team volunteers respond day and night to meet the immediate needs of their neighbors. Assistance given may include financial provisions for food, clothing and lodging, emotional support, prescription medication and other critically needed items.
