Disaster Volunteer

To become a disaster volunteer:

  1. Complete the online COVID-19 Volunteer Application or the Volunteer Disaster Application.
  2. As volunteer assistance is requested from us, we will contact you to confirm your availability.
  3. Report your disaster volunteer hours.

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 checks to make sure volunteers have all the necessary training, certifications and credentials to do their job.
