Teaneck Seeks Volunteers for Emergencies
Free training offered by the Red Cross.
Teaneck's Office of Emergency Management is looking for volunteers to help officials setup the Rodda Center as a "temporary transition facility" during emergencies.
The center will be used as a warming and cooling center, and facility to meet the needs of township residents impacted by emergency incidents, according to a township press release.
Food and lodging are not currently planned at the Rodda Center, the release said.
Volunteers will support town officials in running the facility, but not be asked to enter emergency scenes or work on hazardous assignments.
The Red Cross will provide training for volunteers at no cost and applicants will be subject to a background check, the town said.
Anyone interested in volunteering during emergencies can contact Township Human Resources Director Dean Kazinci at DKazinci@teanecknj.gov or 201-837-1600 ext 1651.
