Mission Statement: To develop a prepared, trained workforce of volunteers to serve the citizens of New Jersey in the event of a public health emergency.
Why does New Jersey need volunteers?
The citizens of New Jersey need your help. The New Jersey Department of Health recognizes that, in the event of a public health emergency, volunteers are our most valuable resource. New Jersey has made great strides in creating the plans and infrastructure necessary to prepare for and respond to a public health emergency. However, we need to identify a dedicated group of individuals that can be relied upon in the event of a bioterrorist or natural disaster to help put our plans into action.
