There are numerous opportunities to volunteer throughout the Greater Spokane area--either directly with Greater Spokane Emergency Management or with one of our many partners. If you are proud of your community and would like to meet like-minded people, volunteering is a good place to start. In addition, it feels good to give back and help others.
In times of an emergency or disaster, First Responders (law enforcement, fire, medical services and utility companies) are under a lot of time pressure to resolve issues as quickly as possible. In some situations, they count on the assistance of trained volunteers. If you would like to assist in times of crisis, consider volunteering with one of the following groups:
