Public Health – Seattle & King County Emergency Preparedness - Volunteer Opportunity

In an effort to ensure equal access to emergency information and services, Public Health - Seattle & King County is working to increase the language capacity and diversity among  Public Health Reserve Corps volunteers. 

As you may know, approximately 11% of King County residents speak English “not well” and 3% don’t speak English at all.  As leaders, you are in a unique position to help your community.  By joining the PHRC, you will be working with us to assure equity - before, during and after an emergency. 

What is the Public Health Reserve Corps?  The PHRC is a community-based group of local medical and non-medical personnel who serve as volunteers during a public emergency.  Volunteers also work in the community during non-disaster times, providing outreach to the underserved, supporting Healthcare for the Homeless, attending community events and supporting Red Cross shelters.

Why join?  Volunteering during an emergency can save lives!

How much time is required to volunteer?  The minimum time required to become a volunteer is approximately 8 hours (including orientation and online trainings.) After becoming an active volunteer, the Public Health Reserve Corps is an opt-in experience - meaning that volunteers are able to choose their level of involvement and there is no obligation to be deployed.

Please consider joining the Reserve Corps today and help respond to public health emergencies or disasters!  To learn more about how you can make a difference in your community, please visit http://www.kingcounty.gov/healthservices/health/preparedness/phreservecorps.aspx.
