About ACS Disaster Response

Mission Statement
The mission of ACS Disaster Response is “serving communities in Christ's name.”

What is the ACS Disaster Response Network?
The ACS Disaster Response operation comprises volunteers who form local disaster response teams that are organized by state disaster response coordinators. State disaster response coordinators and teams assist regional disaster response coordinators to respond to multi-state calamities. The national disaster response coordinator manages the national program.

The union coordinator manages the union program and the conference coordinators manage the conference program.

Who are ACS Disaster Response Partners?
ACS Disaster Response operates under a memorandum of understanding with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the American Red Cross and many state emergency management agencies. It is also a founding member of the inter-agency compact called National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster ( NVOAD) and the affiliated state VOADs.

Training
ACS disaster Response offers a multi-step training to equip volunteers to effectively respond to disasters. Completion of the training modules qualifies volunteers as skilled disaster response workers.

Services Provided
