AmeriCorps Week Volunteer Spotlight: Louqueta Cort
"As an AmeriCorps member working with Disaster Response I help develop manuals, assist with volunteer management and help the department further develop some of the systems already in place. In order to complete these tasks I have had the opportunity to train as a responder while working closely with the response supervisors. At a recent 5-alarm fire in the Bronx I was able to play an integral part in registering clients while helping newer responders get acquainted with how things are run during a big job. This experience embodies being an AmeriCorps member because it shows that we are willing and able to help outside of our regular service at any time"
