Get Trained Before the Next Disaster

Sign Up for North Carolina's ReserveCorps so you can help immediately after a disaster. Depending upon the disaster and individual abilities, volunteers could be preventing further damage to homes, running a volunteer center, supporting mass care, managing crisis calls etc. We encourage all willing residents to register and get trained before the next big disaster, especially Veterans and AmeriCorps Alums. Background checks may be required prior to deployment as required by the partnering organizations. 

Future trainings scheduled for February 21-22, March 13-14, April 17-18, May 1-2, and May 15-16.
