During disaster response, affected communities depend heavily on local and national volunteer organizations to provide trained volunteers and much-needed donated supplies.

  • Volunteer & Donate

    • Remember, cash is best. During a disaster, you can donate to a recognized disaster relief organization. Financial contributions are the fastest, most flexible and most effective method of donating. 

    • Volunteer to respond to disasters and help your community.

    • Join a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program and get trained on basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.

  • Train & Educate

    • You could help save countless lives by taking simple actions to prepare your community or organization for a disaster before one strikes. FEMA offers free training and education tools to train yourself and others on the best ways to prepare for, respond to, and recover from a disaster or emergency. Learn more at
