Volunteers Help Meet Organizations' Needs in Disasters
Does your organization need help in recovering from disaster? How can volunteers support your organization in addressing these needs?
Volunteer Tulsa plays a special role in the greater Tulsa area every day and following an emergency or disaster by connecting volunteers with disaster-related needs of community-based organizations. Through our Emergency Volunteer Center (EVC) you create volunteer opportunities that can be activated when your needs are greatest and when appropriate volunteers become available. This streamlines the public "call to action" and maximizes the messaging through broadcast, print, and social media.
Year-round, Volunteer Tulsa promotes preparedness and supports response and recovery efforts through organizing and managing spontaneous unaffiliated volunteers (SUVs) through the Emergency Volunteer Center (EVC). Volunteers register in a safe, secure and efficient manner to connect with disaster-related needs. Go ahead and do your own background check through Verified Volunteers as a first step to be ready to respond! Connect with Oklahoma Medical Reserve Corps (OKMRC) and/or Community Emergency Response Teams (CERTs).
