In the true spirit of Texans helping Texans, we often see many volunteers respond to areas that have been affected by a disaster in an effort to provide aid to those citizens. This activity can bring so much help and hope to a devastated community but ensuring that those efforts are conducted safely and efficiently is just as important.
If you are responding to a disaster area making sure that you have the most up to date information from the local office of emergency management will help to make those efforts benefit the community more by directing you to a volunteer reception center. At that location you will receive a safety briefing and information on specific locations you can help. Additionally recording the work you completed for use by the local government is imperative. If you check in at a VRC there should be sign in information available but if there is not a VRC established we ask that you utilize the form below to provide information on the activity performed. this documentation will help the local government financially and will aid non-profits in their damage assessments.
