Thank you for your interest in volunteering. This site allows volunteer health professionals and lay volunteers wishing to support medical preparedness and response to register as a responder with participating organizations to provide services during a disaster or public health emergency. The registration system will collect basic information about you and your professional skills. To register you will need to click on the "Register Now" button to begin the registration process. It will allow you to register with a group that is already an established responder organization. If you have completed the registration process or would like to return to continue or change information you will need to click the Log In button using the password and user name you selected when you created your account.
The Texas Disaster Volunteer Registry web site is maintained by the Department of State Health Services but is used as a local volunteer registration and management tool for local responder organizations. The Volunteer Registry provides a secure database with readily available, verifiable information regarding each volunteer's identity, qualifications, training and experience. The Registry helps provide a timely, effective response to disasters and ensures the appropriate match of a volunteer's skills and abilities with the needs of the emergency situation.
When you register you will have the option to choose a group in your area with which to affiliate. If you need assistance during the registration process click on the "Contact Us" tab at the top of the page.
We strongly encourage you to join the nearest Medical Reserve Corps, if one is located in your area. You can learn more about the Medical Reserve Corps by visiting http://www.medicalreservecorps.gov/HomePage
If you are in an area that doesn't have a Medical Reserve Corps please click on the "Contact Us" tab at the top of the page. If you are not a resident of Texas please visit www.phe.gov and register to volunteer in your State.
Your information will be kept secure and shared only with emergency management officials during a disaster response.
As a volunteer, you have the right to say "yes" or "no" to any requests for your services.
