Civilian Emergency Response Corps

Prepare * Respond * Recover
Highly-Skilled Volunteers Register Here
The Civilian Emergency Response Corps is Governor Cuomo's statewide collaborative disaster response and preparedness initiative which aims to recruit "highly skilled" volunteers to assist in ongoing Sandy recovery efforts and to develop a network of volunteers who will be able to respond in future disasters. As part of this initiative, the Long Island Volunteer Center is joining two other Regional Volunteer Centers and two New York State Office for New Americans Opportunity Centers in New York City, Long Island, and the Mid-Hudson Region to recruit and engage individuals who have specialized skills that could help a community recover from a disaster to volunteer for projects in the communities affected by Sandy.

New York State needs skilled volunteers:
Tradespeople, Attorneys, Engineers, Social Workers, Accountants, Translators, Plumbers, Electricians, certain students, Insurance Experts, Truck Drivers, Medical Professionals and other skilled professionals who want to help their communities recover from Sandy and prepare for future disasters.
