No, you can not go against your parents for such reason. They might have some reason or concerns which related to your safety and they do not want you to risk your health. 
You need to keep the full respect for your parents even if they have a different opinion. You may talk to them very politely to understand the reasons of the opinion or to try to explain your view point. 
It is very good to help others specially in hard times but we can not obey Allah by committing the sin of hurting or disrespecting our parents.

But what if your community needs you urgently? For example for ghusl of the dead? 

The ruling is clear. You can try to persuade them, but must obey. 

The only thing I wonder is whether it makes a difference if you do or don't live in your parents' household. If you live with your family, helping your community endangers your family. If you live alone, only you are in danger.
