About CCC AmeriCorps Disaster Service Corps

The CCC AmeriCorps Disaster Corps is headquartered in Twin Branch – McDowell Co. and funded through Volunteer West Virginia as an AmeriCorps program, serving southern West Virginia as a state certified Disaster Service Corps. They are trained through the American Red Cross and have immense hands-on experience & training to help them with their deployments. Their most recent deployment was to Rupert, following the floods of June 2016. In 2015, the team was deployed twice, once to Boone County (April 2015) and Mineral Wells (September 2015) in response to disaster flood relief efforts and needs. In addition to First Aid and CPR, the members also have the ability to set up volunteer and distribution centers, perform debris removal, gutting, mucking and other labor intensive tasks.

About WV Disaster Corps

Since 2014, West Virginia AmeriCorps & VISTA members have the opportunity to be trained and mobilized during local, regional and statewide disasters. By joining WV Disaster Corps, national service members can help communities rebuild and recover from disasters. WV Disaster Corps is a National Service Partnership initiative unique to West Virginia. In addition to response and recovery missions, Senior Corps and AmeriCorps national service members help strengthen West Virginia’s emergency preparedness at the local level. They distribute preparedness kits to home-bound seniors, coordinate emergency response trainings, and design disaster-related service projects throughout the year.
