    We have done a ton of work since the Camp Fire to improve our response.  This includes new processes, new equipment and new key volunteers for functions.  The annual training fee for 2020 is $50 and covers all standard training.

    Here is what returning volunteers should do to register:

    #1:  Pay your annual training fee via our PayPal online payment system.  Thank you for helping cover the cost of providing training!  (Before you click on 'Buy Now' - Enter your name and 'Returning' in the space provided)

  • During ordinary disaster incidents only trained NVADG Disaster Service Worker volunteers are activated for emergency sheltering and evacuation. Registration is open for our once-a-year New Volunteer 16-hour Training.

  • On November 8, 2018, whatever plans folks who volunteer with NVADG had for the day changed at 7:22 a.m. with a WhatsApp message from "JT" titled  Camp Fire Critical ROS.  A fire from Pulga had Concow evacuating and in the next 40 minutes, the entire town of Paradise would be under evacuation orders as well.
