Requesting Assistance from MNVOAD - PARTNERS
If you are a disaster-affected community in Minnesota and need voluntary agency assistance, MNVOAD may be able to help. Please note, MNVOAD does NOT provide immediate emergency response; for that call 9-1-1.
To request MNVOAD or Individual Member Organizations in times of disaster, choose one of the following options:
Once MNVOAD is activated, it helps to provide detailed information about the known disaster impact and service needs. For this, we recommend using the MNVOAD Info and Activation Request Form.docx.
MN Disaster Situational Awareness - MEMBERS
MNVOAD Member Agencies are requested to let us know when they are responding to disasters in Minnesota using the Voluntary Agency Trip Report Form.doc
Please complete a Trip Report for each deployment you make. Send your reports by e-mail to:
Provide as much information as you can about what your organization did. Examples include:
Photos – Please take photos of your volunteers at work and of communities that you serve. We are especially interested in photos showing your agency working in collaboration with other voluntary or government agency partners. Make sure that all people photographed consent to having their pictures taken.
MNVOAD uses a collaborative disaster work order management platform called Crisis Clean-up. If your agency is involved in either collecting requests for clean-up aid or delivering volunteer-clean-up services for a given disaster, please go to https://www.crisiscleanup.org/login to request user access to this platform as needed.
