Community Volunteer - Disaster Service Worker

If you are interested in volunteering your time to help others during a disaster or emergency, you may be interested in registering as a Disaster Service Worker (DSW) Community Volunteer in Trinity County. The Trinity County Office of Emergency Services is recruiting community volunteers to enhance our preparedness capabilities during a large-scale response. 

A few examples of potential opportunities registered disaster service community volunteers could assist with are:

  • Assisting in evacuation centers and shelters
  • Recovery and donation assistance
  • Emergency communications
  • Conducting traffic control
  • Helping care for and feed animals
  • Provide assistance in cooling and clean air centers

After receiving the completed volunteer application, Trinity County will ask potential volunteers to complete a live scan/background screening.  Once the scan is processed, OES will contact you to complete a disaster service oath. This program is for those over 18 years old.
