How to Volunteer
We appreciate people who are willing to provide their time, skills, and knowledge during a public health emergency or disaster.
WAserv is the new registration and contact system for emergency volunteers. Part of a national initiative, WAserv allows medical, public health and other emergency response professionals to pre-register as emergency volunteers.
The system also helps us better communicate with volunteers about preparedness activities and ongoing training opportunities.
