Local disaster volunteers needed Each year .there are emergen- volunteers with the needs of the cies/disasters such as floods, torna- dos, and even large disease outbreaks that occur across the state or nation. When an emergency/disaster happens, the need for volunteers is tremendous Our community is looking for medical and nonmedical staff that is willing to volunteer their skills. Everyone has a role to play when a disaster happens. By volunteering to help during an event, you become part of our reliable and valued resources should addition- al support be needed in our communi- ty. The pre-registration and pre-cre- dentialing of volunteers allows the coordinating agency, Countryside Public Health and Emergency Management to match the skills of the requesting agency. This increases the efficiency of making volunteer assignments and reduces the work of processing volunteers at the time of the event. You may never be asked to serve but if the need arises we will have volunteers ready to serve. SWEPT, the Southwest Emergency Preparedness Team of health care providers encourages citizens to regis- ter to be a volunteer. To become a volunteer you are asked to register in the Minnesota Responds program, you may go to ponds to register or you may contact Countryside Public Health at 320- 839-6135.
