In addition to supporting the recruitment effort for untrained Emergency Response Volunteers, the Volunteer Center of Santa Cruz County plays the critical role of helping divert the volunteer inquiry calls from Santa Cruz County’s First Responder Agencies including The Fire Depatment, The Red Cross, Animal Services, etc. This allows these essential agencies to focus on the critical needs of the region’s Evacuees and Fire Fighters.
