Fri, May 30, 2014 at 1pm EDT / 10am PDT Edit Date
Join Aaron Titus, from Volunteer Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD), as he discusses his experience organizing volunteers in response to disasters. Aaron will also lead a discussion on how technology has been leveraged to coordinate tens of thousands of volunteers from dozens of organizations to thousands of sites after disasters.
Aaron Titus serves as the New Jersey representative to Volunteer Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD) for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Helping Hands/LDS Charities). In that capacity he helped organize the Mormon Helping Hands responses for Hurricane Irene in 2011, the New Jersey "Derecho" thunderstorms and Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
Recognized at the 2013 National VOAD Conference as the FedEx Innovative Program of the Year, Crisis Cleanup was developed by and for field volunteers, team leaders, canvassers, and the people who work one-on-one with people whose homes have been affected by flood, tornadoes, earthquakes, wind, fire, or other disaster. Crisis Cleanup can respond to a new disaster the same day, permitting relief organizations to instantly coordinate efforts.
