The Norwalk Health Department needs adults who live or work in Norwalk 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 140 people who’ve already been trained and serve on the ERT.

Sign up now. Group interviews for this cohort will be held on February 26 at 7 pm or March 2 at 4 pm. Training sessions will be held on March 10, 17, 24, and 31, 2020 (7 – 9 pm each night) 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.
