Emergency Volunteer Center
Community Emergency Preparedness CorpsWelcome, John Chau and Megan Esposito! Megan, John and Volunteer Tulsa have launched Points of Light's Community Emergency Preparedness Corps to help strengthen our community's disaster resiliency.
Volunteering in Disaster
Thank you for your interest in helping your community recover from disasters and local emergencies. The BEST way you can help is REGISTER and be part of an organized effort that works in coordination with local emergency response officials.
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).
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.
Volunteer Tulsa's Emergency Volunteer Center is central to the greater Tulsa community's response to local emergencies and disasters publicizing the role of volunteer leadership and service. Contact Volunteer Tulsa for guidelines.
