That's an avenue. Here in Contra Costa RC runs the shelters. They do other stuff, don't quite have a handle on the range of responsibilities for them. Seems like Red Cross gets sent out of state more than other emergency response groups, besides the heavy search/rescue teams.

Years ago I did Shelter Management and Damage Assessment classes from RC.

In Contra Costa there is also the Medical Reserve group. You know all that triaging and transporting? Probably those folks wind up with the licensed healthcare folks at the next level up from the CERT responders.

I think we get RED shirts and IDs in the Medical Reserve. Don't believe Concord's CERT get IDs, but those spiffy green hard hats and green vests are pretty easy to spot.

Sometimes I forget: anything I post relative to CA law is in the light of current law, as of the date of the post.

Ask CA law questions in the How CA Laws Apply to/Affect Me Forum
- most questions that start 'Is it legal ...' go there.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.
