Disaster Preparedness Coach

Get Ready | Esten Listos Santa Cruz County is a new project to reach out to our community and help them prepare for a disaster.
Volunteers are needed to assist with individual outreach to seniors throughout Santa Cruz County.
Our goal is to help 11,000 people in Santa Cruz County develop a personalized emergency plan. We are specifically reaching out to community members that do not already have a plan in place and are at high risk of being impacted by a fire or flood.
We are especially in need of bi-lingual, English / Spanish volunteers.
Volunteers are expected to commit to 5 - 10 hours a week.
We will provide training and ongoing support for all volunteers.

Volunteers can assist in a variety of ways including:

  • Phone outreach to people who have asked us to call them (no cold calling)
  • Talking to people in small groups about disaster preparedness using zoom
  • Supporting outreach through phone, email and online training
  • Distributing information at food distribution sites.
