Are you ready to help your community?
A major disaster could occur at any moment and quickly overwhelm the capacity of Albany County’s local response organizations. Recovery of our communities after a disaster is dependent on adequate resources and trained volunteers.
Spontaneous unaffiliated volunteers who show up at disaster sites, though well-meaning, can slow down the response process and place themselves and others at risk.
The pre-registration of potential volunteers enhances your community’s ability to mobilize appropriate emergency response volunteers as needed to assist with an emergency response. By pre-registering with a response organization, Albany County residents will be appropriately trained and prepared to use their valuable skills, talents and experiences where they are needed most.
