Ready to take the first step?

We have several levels of volunteers based on your interest and experience

Resource Volunteer: Assist your local team with the knowledge you have now!

  • Fundraising
  • Administration
  • Outreach events and tabling
  • Space or donations

Interim Volunteer: While you’re in the process of taking the necessary training to become an active volunteer, you can do all the same activities as a resource volunteer plus assist on scene with equipment organization and other safe tasks while you learn.

Active Volunteer: Fully trained to work on scene, deploy in disasters, and handle animals.

Junior Active Volunteer: With parental permission and training, junior volunteers age 16 and up can participate in our trainings and events.
