Are you interested in helping your neighbors get back on their feet after a disaster? When a disaster strikes, families often need help removing debris, tearing down water soaked walls, or ripping out buckled floors. In the event of a disaster in your greater community, IOCC will reach out to you to join one of our Emergency Action Teams. If you are willing to travel to a disaster affected area that is not in your greater community, please let us know that as well.

You don’t need to be skilled – just energetic!
You must be at least 16 years old.

Expectations:
Be able to deploy to a disaster affected area on short notice.
You must provide your own transportation to/from the Emergency Action Team location.
