We need the island's best to volunteer for disaster response
When the big one hits, will you be able to help? In order to be truly helpful in an emergency you need training and you need a connection with Vashon Fire, and through them to King County's Office of Emergency Management or Public Health — Seattle & King County.
As all-volunteer organizations, VashonBePrepared's typical partners are always looking to recruit volunteers for our island's CERT program, Emergency Operations Center, shelter/feeding, emergency communications and related functions, all in coordination with Vashon Fire. There is no paycheck, but the rewards are great for those willing to support their community and serve in a disaster situation. Be it earthquake, widespread fire, plane crash or severe storm, we need you to be part of the solution!
To get started as a volunteer, please fill out the form below and we will get back to you within a couple days. The more information you fill out about your background and interests, the more we can find a good spot for you.
Volunteers should chose one of our partners to volunteer with, though its easy to change as you learn more. Each partner has a volunteer program with specific goals and requirements. Learn about their mission, their volunteer programs, and which might be of most interest to you elsewhere on this page, or under the main Partner menu at the top of the page. (VashonBePrepared, as a lightweight coalition of these partners, does not have volunteers itself.)
