When a disaster strikes – whether it is a flood, hurricane, wildfire, pandemic flu or terrorist attack –social workers are critical to a successful disaster response.
The Texas Disaster Volunteer Registry Web site was created to identify and link volunteers to those in our Texas communities who need help during or after a disaster. The Registry provides a secure database with readily available, verifiable information regarding each volunteer’s identity, qualifications, training and experience. The Registry helps provide a timely, effective response to disasters and ensures the appropriate match of a volunteer’s skills and abilities with the needs of the emergency situation.
