Mental Health volunteers to support Hurricane Irma

The Red Cross is still processing over 5,000 applications received for Hurricane Harvey, so it is not accepting new applications for health and mental health volunteers to support Hurricane Irma. Those who have already applied have likely been deployed, heard from a screener or have received an email telling them how to take the classes and that a screener will be calling. As soon as Irma has passed through, volunteers will begin to be deployed to Florida and possibly Georgia. Those interested in other volunteer opportunities through the Red Cross can apply here primary volunteer application. The Red Cross appreciates all CALPCC members who have applied and have deployed.
