In the event of a community disaster or emergency where the resources of the Emergency Management Agency (EMA) become overwhelmed, the EMA would like to call upon trained volunteers who could respond quickly and professionally during the critical response phase to protect and preserve life and property of our community.
This Disaster Response Team is an all-volunteer organization whose primary purpose is providing specialty construction and demolition emergency assistance to the EMA.
Membership is open to all building industry professionals willing to make the commitment to serve their community with their time, knowledge, and resources. Members of the Disaster Response Team must attend a training and orientation session of at least 6-8 hours annually with the Rutherford County EMA. Participation is on a volunteer basis. However, in some cases compensation may be made - but not guaranteed - as part of federal disaster relief programs. The Rutherford County EMA will work to promote our volunteers by allowing priority status on the awarding of contracts for the recovery phase of a disaster.
