Why is local public health looking for volunteers?
One role of local public health is to respond to emergencies that can pose a threat to the health of the community. Public health emergencies may include large outbreaks of a contagious disease like influenza, bioterrorism incidents like a chemical attack, and natural disasters like tornadoes. In the event of a large emergency, local public health may not have enough staff to respond alone. Services that volunteers can provide are crucial to the successful response to an emergency.
