NORWALK, CT - Do you enjoy helping others and giving back to your community? If so, join the Norwalk Health Department Emergency Response Team (ERT), a team of volunteers (18 years and older) who donate their time and expertise to prepare for and respond to health emergencies and help promote healthy living throughout the year.

“Health Department staff train and plan extensively to respond in the event of a health emergency,” explains Tim Callahan, Director of Health. “Volunteers play an important role in that effort. When an emergency strikes, health department staff will need volunteer support to help deliver the best response.”

ERT volunteers include community members with both medical and non-medical backgrounds. Interpreters, homemakers, chaplains, office workers, legal advisors, medical and public health professionals are all needed for key positions on the ERT to lend a hand and help the Health Department help others. Use your current skills, develop new skills, and gain additional experience with the ERT. By joining the ERT, you can also meet other people who share your interests. The Health Department will provide training and insurance, while you provide your time and skills. Program training starts in September. Call (203) 854-7979 or email dschlegel@norwalkct.org to sign up and get more information.
