Event description
SARAID Community Resilience Team are recruiting new volunteers in Avon!

About this Event

If you have ever wanted to help your local community now is your opportunity to volunteer with the Avon Community Resilience Team (CRT).

The purpose of the Avon CRT is to support communities within Avon to be able to be better prepared to cope with adverse situations like the effects of a storm, high winds and flooding, support communities during emergencies and support Avon Fire & Rescue Service and Avon & Somerset Police in reducing risk in communities.

Volunteers could be tasked with a number or things to support in these areas. That might be delivering supplies or clearing up following a flood, carrying out night time patrols of the river in Bath, helping to clear a hoarders house, attending community events, giving fire prevention and crime advice, supporting a rest centre or searching for missing people.

The Avon CRT is coordinated by the charity Search And Rescue Assistance In Disasters (SARAID) and our team of volunteers are trained in disciplines such as basic first aid, navigation, search techniques, radio communications, water awareness and water rescue, working as a team, working effectively with the emergency services and much more.

SARAID are holding recruitment events for members of the public to find out more about the CRT and express an interest in signing up as a volunteer. The events will be an opportunity to meet volunteers from SARAID and gain an insight into what we do. There will be a presentation, followed by a chance to have a go at some of the practical things we would do during training.

As well as gaining skills and experiences that can be useful in day-to-day life and in the workplace, volunteers will benefit from the camaraderie and strong bonds that working as part of a close-knit team brings. No matter what your background and abilities, anyone can volunteer, you just need to be over the age of 18.
