Be a Preparedness Volunteer with the Charlotte County Health Department

Volunteers Raising HandsVolunteers Raising Hands

In Florida, disasters such as Hurricanes, wildfires and mass-casualty incidents are tragically familiar. Other threats like terrorism and pandemic flu may lie just beyond the horizon. When such events occur they threaten to overwhelm local resources.

Often impossible to avert or prevent, large-scale emergencies have sharpened our understanding of the health dangers we face. They’ve made us aware of the importance of emergency preparedness, and of the need for a volunteer organization of practicing and retired medical professionals teamed with non-health field lay citizens ready to fill the gaps in care that arise when disaster strikes home.
