Red Cross Disaster Action Team Members

Disaster Action Teams (where I started and still think it is among the more exciting things we do) provide 24-hour emergency response to various local disasters, most frequently home fires, ensuring that those affected have access to resources for basic disaster related necessities such as food, lodging and clothing. These teams assist the Red Cross in delivering its mission of alleviating human suffering caused by disasters. Essentially our DAT volunteers respond to local disasters on an on-call basis. Once you are trained, you sign-up for on-call shifts (typically 4-6 hours/1-2 shifts per week.) If nothing happens during your shift, you go about your normal day. If an event does happen, the expectation is you would be available to respond, along with other members of your team. Most responses take 2-3 hours and there truly is no better feeling in the world knowing you helped when needed most. Of course, in the event of a large disaster (i.e. apartment building fire) we may call all team members. Also, with experience, we may ask if you are available to help with a national deployment. To get involved and/or for more information, visit www.redcross.org/volunteer or contact us by clicking on the Express Interest button below. What you will do: Focus on client services Interview clients to address their disaster-caused immediate needs, such as the need for lodging and food Conduct damage assessments of affected dwellings and determine habitability Complete forms related to service and provide referrals to other agencies In some instances, assist the family in their recovery planning Assist with medical and emotional needs (must meet specific criteria to be eligible) Requirements: Take Red Cross online and classroom training 18 years or older Valid driver’s license or reliable transportation Flexible to respond to disasters on short notice (disasters happen 24/7 and we respond at all hours, day and night) Provide on-call schedule and can respond as a team, generally 2-3 people, within one hour of being called While most of the situations you will respond to as a Disaster Action Team responder are small, bigger disasters do happen. The skills you’ve gained as a responder are applicable to large-scale events. This includes assisting in the operation of shelters/evacuation centers, performing disaster assessments, supporting mass feeding and distribution of emergency supplies.

Cistern Consultant for Farm's original water source

Flint Hill Farm Educational Center dates to about 1850. The original source of water on the farm was through gathering water in the farm's three cisterns. One is near the barn, the other two are near the farm house. One of the cisterns is accessible through a well pump. The second was at the corner of the sun porch. During renovation, the access to that cistern was covered up. It is the desire of the Educational Center to resurrect that cistern and reconnect the drain pipes from the roof to it. The third cistern is supposedly under a wooden floor in what is now the tack room near the barn. Reclaiming these cisterns for their original purpose would be an excellent educational opportunity for students or a group in the community. The Educational Center, as a model of a sustainable farm to our local schools, would greatly benefit from having these again in working order. Individual or group would need to have knowledge of construction, use of tools, mason skills, and a willingness to be creative.

Athlete Mentors

Bethlehem Special Olympics is in need of additional mentors for our athletes who are in leadership roles. We have several types of mentor roles available including working with our Athlete Leadership Team, Global Messengers, Athletes as a Coach and more. A mentor needs to be a supporter, adviser, guide, coach, teacher, someone who gives help and advice to help a person learn a role, and can give specified training in a particular subject or event and help empower the athlete. The mentor journeys with the athlete through observations, experiences, the Athlete Leadership Training Series/ALPs University coursework, and practical application of leadership skills. Together, they experience the evolution of an athlete leader. Building leadership skills is a partnership between an athlete and a mentor and one of the most rewarding experiences ever! As new challenges or skills sets are introduced to an athlete, the mentor modifies his/her level of influence as needed. There is no magic time frame for an athlete’s acquisition of knowledge, self-exploration and leadership skills. Every athlete is different in their rate of learning and development of their skills and self-confidence. Roles of Mentors Mentors’ roles are multi-dimensional and may include, but are not limited to, the following: Finds short-term mentor(s) to assist with athlete’s desired new role if mentor’s skill-sets do not meet the athlete’s need at that time such as becoming a coach or an official Moves between helper, speech coach, facilitator, advisor, confidant, teacher and friend as needed Works one-on-one during each course and monitors follow up tasks Ensures there are adequate opportunities to provide practicum experiences Commits to a partnership in making the ALPs experiences as meaningful as possible Is an advocate at all times Ensures athlete knows about training opportunities inside and outside Special Olympics Characteristics of Good Mentors Characteristics never diminish but grow with experience. Listed are some of the most important characteristics any mentor should have: Learns everything one can about the athlete Gives encouragement and provides constructive feedback Asks the questions “why” or “how” to check the athlete’s understanding Allows athlete time to formulate answers to questions and express him or herself before intervening; provide help as needed Values athlete’s opinions and preferences Listens – people want to know what the athlete thinks, not what the mentor knows Helps athletes stay on task Fades assistance as athlete leader becomes more proficient in skills and role Represents Special Olympics professionally
