The FEMA Corps Alumni Association mourns the loss of Alfred Claud “AC” who passed away earlier this morning. AC’s entire career and life were dedicated to public service and volunteerism. As an AmeriCorps alumni himself, he was able to connect and relate to so many members and support them through their service. Many alumni attribute completing their service year because of the mentorship and support AC provided them. Even when we became alumni, AC was passionate about ensuring alumni were embraced, supported, and connected. For those alumni who live in the DC area, we know this to be true because every time an alumnus moved to the area, it was AC who introduced them to the community; it was AC who had them over for dinner; it was AC who made them feel at home… As one of the original FEMA Corps Program Liaisons, AC is a “founding father” of sorts, who helped establish and build a program we have all come to love. AC’s legacy will out live his time here on earth, carried on by the many of those he inspired along the way. He embodied everything an AmeriCorps alum should be and above all else he held true to the pledge he made many years ago…”I will carry this commitment with me this year and beyond. I am an AmeriCorps member, and I will get things done.”

Our AmeriCorps NCCC-FEMA Corps team in Puerto Rico is hard at work at the FEMA Federal Emergency Management Agency Distribution Center. The FEMA Corps team continues to assist with disaster response for those affected by #HurricaneIrma in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The team has been organizing generators, conducting generator maintenance for deployment, using pallet jacks to transport and load up cots, receiving and moving shipments of MREs (Meals Ready to Eat), testing light sets, and much more. #AmeriCorpsNCCC #FEMACorps #BeTheGreaterGood #AmeriCorpsWorks #DisasterServe
If there are any alums who are interested in rejoining the FEMA workforce, please go to the link here. FEMA is hiring a large number of personnel to support recovery efforts following Hurricane Harvey. Specifically, they are looking for call center customer service personnel and reservists across all cadres. This batch of hiring may benefit not only Hurricane Harvey recovery, but also the potential recovery from future disasters that may occur this year. If you are interested, please indicate that you are a FEMA Corps alum in the email and include any applicable FEMA training you received and which FQS titles you had in your resumes. Please pass this message along to alums who may not be on this page and also encourage them to join our page.
Also, to those alums who are currently supporting ongoing response and recovery efforts, continue the hard work and know that your work is greatly appreciated. You are carrying this commitment beyond your service year!

If you are like me and your heart is absolutely breaking for the people of Texas and are eager to help, here are some helpful tips. Also, make sure you follow the AmeriCorps Alums page for more information on Volunteer Leader roles soon to be opening. We will continue to share opportunities as they come up, as well. Remember, we all have pledged to carry our commitment to service, "This year AND beyond!"
1) Cash is the fastest way to assist disaster survivors. Cash offers voluntary agencies the most flexibility in obtaining the most-needed resources.
2) Donate through a trusted organization. At the national level, many voluntary, faith- and community-based organizations are active in disasters, and are trusted ways to donate in order to help disaster survivors. If you’d like to donate to assist those affected by disaster, National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (www.nvoad.org) is the best place to start.
3) Affiliate with existing non-profit organizations before coming to the disaster area. Contacting and affiliating with an established organization will help to ensure that you are appropriately trained and supported to respond in the most effective way.
o If you’d like to volunteer to assist those affected by disaster, the best place to start is the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (https://www.nvoad.org/hurricane-harvey/volunteer)
Keep sharing good information everyone. Stay safe out there.
Are you a NCCC, FEMACorps, or Red Cross Alum w Shelter Ops and Disaster Service training? Are you able to deploy to Texas for #HurricaneHarvey response?
If you've answered yes to both, please like this post and keep eye out for Volunteer Leader role that is opening soon for response.
If you aren't but know an alum who is, please tag them in the comments so they can get more information as it's available.
Safe travels, teams!
Hurricane Harvey is knocking and FEMA Corps is answering! 11 Pacific Region FEMA Corps Teams are packing now and heading to Texas to respond to the most powerful hurricane on U.S. soil in 12 years. Wish them luck and we'll keep you updated here!
As Hurricane Harvey approaches the Gulf coast, the FCAA sends our thoughts and prayers to the citizens and response personnel in the path of the storm. We want to recognize the nearly 235 current FEMA Corps members who are, as we speak, actively preparing to deploy or have already made their way to Texas in support of the response. FCAA's official message to those members:
"The FEMA Corps Alumni Association applauds you for stepping up and serving those in the path of Hurricane Harvey, during a time they WILL need it the most. Know that those in need may not just be survivors of the storm, but also the responders who are doing everything they can to save lives and property in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. For the last five years, FEMA Corps teams have played an extremely important role in the response and recovery to disasters nationwide and it’s important to remember that even if it feels like your role is small, your contribution is still large in the grand scheme of the mission. Know this moment…this deployment… this service project will be a time of your life you will NEVER forget and to make sure you relish the moment and opportunity to help others. There will be difficult times throughout the coming days and possibly months, but never forget your training and never forget why you chose to serve. Never forget the resources you have at your disposal to help get through the difficult time, including your teammates as a source of support. Know that this also includes FEMA Corps members, past and present, who have been in your shoes, have experienced what you are about to experience, and want nothing more than to see ALL of you succeed. Give the next few months of your service year 110%. You won’t regret it and you WILL remember it. Bottom line, the people in the path of this storm may or may not know who you are, but they are counting on your service anyway. Good luck and GET THINGS DONE!”
Keep us updated on how you’re doing! Send us your stories, pictures, and team updates. If you would like to be connected to an alumni mentor, please reach out to the FCAA, by sending us a message at [email protected] or privately messaging us through Facebook.
