To become a DAT volunteer, you must be 18 years or older, have a good understanding of spoken/written English, a working personal phone, a valid driver’s license, and be able to pass a background check. If none of these things are a concern for you, then becoming a DAT volunteer may be the perfect resolution for you!
DAT volunteers are required to take a 3 hour entry level orientation that covers the Chapter, organization and DAT. After taking the course you will understand the roles and responsibilities of a DAT volunteer, when and how to respond to local emergencies, policies and procedures, as well as how to sign-up for on-call DAT hours.
If you’re interested in becoming a DAT volunteer as part of your New Year’s resolution, or just because you want to give back and better your community, please call us to schedule your training at 716.878.2387 or visit us online.
