Disaster Services - (Disaster Action Team DAT)

Who is the DAT

American Red Cross chapters have Disaster Action Teams (commonly called "DATs"), which provide disaster relief services on an on-call basis. DAT responds to local residential emergencies and disasters such as a fire or flood.

The teams are composed of American Red Cross Disaster Services volunteers who have received training in disaster assessment, client casework and other skills.  DAT members are a vital link between public safety departments and their local Red Cross chapter.

What DAT Does

After an initial call from the fire department, law enforcement, disaster victim, family member or friend, Red Cross DAT members respond to disasters.

The workers evaluates the extent of damage to determine how much assistance is needed and may be able to provide immediate disaster relief to those who have been displaced by local emergencies or disasters.

Immediate relief means getting them what they need most without waiting a day or more – food, lodging, clothing, medication replacement, medical equipment, toiletries, clean-up items and mental health counseling. In the days following a disaster, the Red Cross continues to work with families while they find ways to rebuild their lives.

All disaster assistance is provided through the generosity of the American public.

If you or someone you know recently experienced a natural or man-made disaster in Mono County and needs assistance, please call the Red Cross DAT Coordinator at 760-924-1770 or 808-658-0618.
