Broward CountyEmergencyEmergency Volunteer Opportunities
Emergency Volunteers

Volunteer opportunities abound in Broward County, and at no time is the need for volunteers greater than during a recovery from a hurricane or other emergency. These efforts are coordinated through Emergency Support Function #15 (ESF15), Volunteers and Donated Goods, one of many mechanisms in place that organize and provide assistance to the Broward Emergency Response Team (BERT) during times of disaster. ESF15 coordinates and facilitates the most effective and efficient use of affiliated and spontaneous volunteers, monetary donations, and goods during all phases of disaster management. Broward County Emergency Management Division encourages residents who are interested in becoming a volunteer in the aftermath of a storm or other emergency, to contact one of these County emergency response partners.
