DAT Duty Officers are the lynchpin that holds a Red Cross disaster response together. DAT Duty Officers receive notification from clients and agencies requesting assistance during a fire, flood, or other disaster, and then deploy the most appropriate resources to support those efforts. Candidates can work from home and should be comfortable with the use of a computer and cellphone. Contact Danielle Dietze, 570-202-7954, danielle.dietze@redcross.org.
