Who are Tennessee Baptist Disaster Relief Volunteers?

Volunteers are first and foremost Christians. They come from every walk of life. Volunteers give their time, energy and resources, and are trained to serve others. A qualified volunteer participates in at least 12 hours of training.

How do Volunteers serve?

General Cleanup
Mass Feeding
Food Distribution
Water Purification
Chainsaw Operation
Mud Out
Crisis Intervention

Before a disaster ever strikes, local volunteers contact officials in their community to see how they can help in the event a disaster occurs. During a disaster response, local volunteers stand ready to help meet needs share the love of Christ.


How Do Volunteers Organize?

Individuals form teams from their church and association to train, prepare and equip for disaster response.

Response starts locally as churches and associations meet needs in the area. Teams and equipment are called to work in areas outside of their association through the state Disaster Relief office.
