Emergency Volunteer Opportunities in Yakima Valley
The Yakima County ARES/RACES group is involved with supporting a number of organizations in the Yakima Valley include the Yakima Valley Office of Emergency Management and the Yakima Sheriff's Office.
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a volunteer group that has been deployed throughout the years to assist in the various disasters or situations that our county has encountered such as floods, fires, community outreach and training, and law enforcement training exercises.
Yakima county sheriff's office provides search and rescue throughout Yakima County and outlying areas, primarily in remote wilderness areas. Our team of highly trained and motivated volunteers bring special skills, equipment and their personal time to assist the sheriff in providing exceptional search and rescue service to the citizens of Yakima County.
