What role might I play?

  • Lend the community any special skills.

Why is it necessary for me to register pre-disaster? 

During disasters, large numbers of professionals with many different skills show up to help, but many of them are turned away because they are without the safety and emergency skills training given pre-event to keep personnel safe. An effective response requires that volunteers follow a pre-established protocol for activation and follow the incident command system.

My time is valuable. What do I get in return?

  • The satisfaction of giving back to your community through providing health education or a health service and the satisfaction in assisting other local communities with essential services during a time of emergency.
  • Networking. Meet other members of the community and experts in the field of public health preparedness, attend training events, and participating in conference meetings.
  • Receive cost-free or minimal cost training. Get prepared by the best. For the sake of safety, one training per year is required to remain an active member.
