About Disaster Action Team members (DAT team)
* DAT team (Disaster Action Team)- Team members respond to the “local” disasters that occur throughout our chapter’s 14 county coverage area. Typically these responses will be house fires but could also be due to local flooding, tornado aftermath, etc. Team members are expected to respond on scene within 2 hours of the call being made by our local Red Cross dispatcher. The team will provide financial assistance CAC cards (Client Assistance Cards) to the family/ individual impacted by the disaster as well as “comfort kits” that contain items for personal hygiene, blankets, and stuffed animals for impacted children.
Parents and children are invited and encouraged to get involved.
