Volunteer Acceptance Policy
Thank you for your interest in the CCADT. This application form is for applicants who wish to be involved in roles other than "disaster responder". If you wish to become a disaster responder, please go back to the home page and fill out the "Disaster Responder" application. You'll still be able to choose the roles listed here.
VOLUNTEER POLICY ACCEPTANCE
I understand that based on the completion of the CCADT volunteer application and disclaimer forms, the screening process, and any available volunteer training and orientation, the CCADT CEO and/or the Operations Director reserves the right to determine who will be approved as a volunteer. During an incident, volunteers will be deployed at the discretion of the Volunteer Coordinator, Operations Director, and/or Chief Executive Officer.
I understand that volunteering with the CCADT may require travel to an incident within one of the seven counties - Fresno, Madera, Kings, Tulare, Mariposa, Merced, and Kern; and may require being away from my job and home for a pre-determined length of time. Although best efforts will be made by the CCADT, I understand that travel costs may not be reimbursed either before, during, or after the deployment. I will not be compensated for my deployment time.
If called upon, I understand that I’m not obligated to participate in any response.
While deployed and working with the CCADT at an incident, I am expected to abide by the organization’s professional Code of Conduct.
I agree to abide by the authority of the CCADT and the county’s emergency response agencies (law enforcement, animal control, fire department, etc.) and to follow instructions while participating under their leadership.
