Volunteers can play a key role in the recovery from a natural disaster. Volunteer Polk, at the direction of Polk County Emergency Management, becomes the clearing house for volunteers in times of disaster. This department registers all volunteers and conducts background check to make sure the volunteers have all the training, certifications and credentials they need to do their job.
