Seeing images of disaster may compel you to head to the impacted area. Working in a disaster area is complex with plans and procedures already in place. Until a need has been identified and the local community impacted has requested support, volunteers should not enter without being asked to do so.

The City of Virginia Beach asks that volunteers do not self deploy until they are contacted and given instructions. VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads will coordinate the necessary volunteers when and if the City requests their assistance. Please be sure that you have filled out a complete profile on VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads website so that we can properly contact you should you be needed.
