Is a partnership that integrates local, regional, and statewide volunteer programs to assist our Public Health and healthcare systems during a disaster/emergency. Local MN Responds Volunteer Coordinators mobilize health and “non-health” volunteers to respond to emergencies within the community. Major emergencies can overwhelm the capabilities of hospitals and clinics. Volunteers during this critical time can play an important role to improve overall response capabilities.
As a Prospective Volunteer:
MN Responds Volunteer Coordinators are in the process of recruiting medical (RNs, LPNs, CNA but also ancillary services and others with medical type background. Some examples include Veterinarian, Dental or Chiropractor and more.) “Non-medical” volunteers to contribute their skills and expertise during the COVID-19 crisis. We are looking for individuals that are working or retired and willing to offer assistance. An individual DOES NOT HAVE to be in the health care field. Anyone interested in helping the community is encouraged.
We would like volunteers to register now. Have your personal information, licenses, certifications, competencies, and contact information available.
Contact the MN Responds Volunteer Coordinator, Jen Nelson at Southwest Health & Human Services.
