The Norwalk Health Department needs adults who live or work in the Norwalk and New Canaan areas for key positions on its Emergency Response Team (ERT). This team of volunteers—which includes people with both medical and non-medical backgrounds—donates their time and expertise to prepare for and respond to emergencies and to promote healthy living year-round.

The goal of the ERT is to extend the resources of the professional Health Department staff. ERT volunteers work with public health officials to spread preparedness messages within the community and assist with other public health programs and events. The Health Department provides training and insurance, while volunteers provide their time and skills.

This latest cohort of volunteers will join a dedicated and diverse group of more than 80 people who’ve already been trained and serve on the ERT.

Sign up now. Group interviews for this cohort will be held on March 25 at 4 pm, April 4 at 7 pm, or April 8 at 4 pm. Training will be held on Tuesday evenings, 7 – 9 pm, April 23 to May 21 at the Norwalk Health Department (137 East Avenue, Norwalk, CT). Advanced registration is required.

 Call (203) 854-7979, or email dschlegel@norwalkct.org to sign up and get more information.
