Disaster Reception Center
The Disaster Reception Center (RC) serves as the intake/registration site for those who are impacted by catastrophic events in our community. Survivors are kept safe and comfortable while RC staff determine their needs and begin the process of pairing them with agencies that offer additional assistance. The RC provides amenities such as charging stations, internet access and telephone service for affected community members.
The RC operates as a partnership between county government agencies’ staff and volunteers from St. Peter’s Lutheran Church and other non-governmental organizations. The volunteers provide administration and support for the RC, allowing county agencies’ staff to focus their full attention on identifying and meeting the needs of Survivors.
Volunteers are encouraged to review the following training documents in order to stay up to date on the latest procedures.
