Disaster Health Service Associate

Are you a licensed health care professional? Join the cadre of healthcare professionals who have served as the core of the Red Cross since the very beginning of the organization.

Provide quality care in disaster shelters to help assess people’s health and provide hands-on care in alignment with your professional licensure in our new RN-led model. Duties include assisting clients with activities of daily living, providing health education and helping to replace medications, durable medical equipment or consumable medical supplies. Daily observation and health screening for COVID-19-like illness among shelter residents may also be required. If you are an RN, LPN, LVN, APRN, NP, EMT, paramedic, MD/DO or PA with a current and unencumbered license, please consider volunteering. You're one step closer to making the world a better place!
Training will be provided. All Red Cross volunteers must complete a background check. Please have a photo ID available during the application process. Volunteer position details and application available here -
