VOL: Volunteer Preparedness
Getting Prepared to be a Volunteer at a Disaster
The Midwest Consortium (MWC) developed this introduction to health and safety considerations for volunteers who will be traveling to a disaster to assist the local community in clean-up. Also available in Spanish.
When completed, participants will be better able to:
- Identify what you need to know before you depart
- Recognize factors to consider in packing
- Recognize possible hazards
- Identify resources to minimize exposure to hazards
