Be Ready Alliance Coordinating for Emergencies

About the organization

Be Ready Alliance Coordinating for Emergencies (BRACE) is a community -based disaster coalition that leads in emergency preparedness, response, and recovery efforts in Escambia County.

We train and mobilize volunteers, and collaborate with local, regional, and national partners to ensure the disaster readiness of our community.


The Volunteer Coordinator will enhance the ability of BRACE to expand and develop systems to sustain a volunteer program. This will allow the organization to expand volunteer engagement in Citizen Corps, CERT, Emergency Support Function 15, Preparedness, Response, Recovery, Mitigation, Homebound and Functional Needs Support Services throughout the counties in Florida covered by the program before, during and after disasters. Implement a system for screening and matching volunteers to needs of BRACE and partners. Coordinate the development of a volunteer committee that will ensure that volunteer policies, procedures, and standard operations are followed. Maintain files, training records and emergency contact information for all volunteers. Create volunteer CERT volunteer teams that are prepared to deploy in times of disasters
