Disaster Healthcare Volunteers are professionals like you who want to volunteer during an emergency or disaster. When you register on the secure web-based registry, you will indicate your volunteer preferences and enter information about your skills. The registry will automatically notify you in the case of a disaster and track your deployment.
Your role will be to practice your profession or skill as either an individual called up at the time of a disaster, or as part of an organized response team. Every attempt will be made to match your skills, competencies, and license/registration level with your responsibilities during a disaster. However, there might be situations in which you will be asked to assist with activities that are less challenging than your normal work duties.
