Be aware that a requirement for becoming a San Jose RACES member is registering to become a California Disaster Service Worker volunteer.  While anyone can become a DSW volunteer, the process requires one to subscribe to a loyalty oath.

Non United States citizens should research whether taking the oath will have any impact on their own country’s allegiance.
