Coconino County & AZ health departments look for health care professionals to volunteer

Arizona Disaster Healthcare Volunteers

If you are a healthcare provider with an active license, a public health professional, member of a medical disaster response team, or non-health community volunteer willing to be on-call to support Arizona in the event of a disaster – help support public health emergency preparedness and “Register Today.”

Statewide registration is available for “The Arizona Emergency System for Advance Registration of Volunteer Health Professionals (AZ-ESAR-VHP),” local “Medical Reserve Corps Units,” “General Volunteers,” and/or additional “Specialty Teams.”

What does it take to register for disaster service?

During the on-line registration process, you will be asked to enter information regarding your license (if applicable). Enter information about the best way to contact you, and other relevant background information. Once you’ve registered, your credentials will be validated – before an emergency – so that you can be deployed quickly and efficiently. Your information is for official use only and will only be viewed by authorized system managers.

Once I’m registered, what happens next?

During a declared emergency or disaster event, (e.g., public health emergency, wildfire, flood, or mass care incident), this system will be accessed by authorized medical/health officials at the State health Emergency Operations Center, or your local County.

If a decision is made to request your service, you will be contacted using the information you enter on the site. If you agree to deploy, you will be provided additional information and instructions by appropriate field operational officials.

Registered volunteers are encouraged to join a local Medical Reserve Corps Unit or Specialty Teams (if applicable) to receive training and participate in public health and preparedness activities throughout the year.
