Resources for Volunteers

Volunteers are an essential part of New Hampshire's response in any emergency. Most smaller communities in the state have fire departments that are staffed by volunteers.

Amateur radio operators, the American Red Cross, Civil Air Patrol, Medical Reserve Corps units, and Citizen Emergency Response Teams are other examples of organizations that rely on volunteers and have important emergency response functions.
