Prospective Volunteers

Welcome to the ADPH Volunteer Network and the Alabama Responds which is the State of Alabama's online system for managing public health and medical disaster responders (volunteers and staff teams). This site supports a variety of personnel who may be utilized during disasters, all-hazard response efforts, and public health activities.

Who Can Volunteer?

Anyone can volunteer. ADPH is currently placing emphasis on the recruitment of licensed medical and healthcare volunteers that will satisfy clinical needs and provide surge capacity for public health emergencies. However, volunteers who do not have any medical training are welcomed and are encouraged to register. There will be a need for volunteers with all types of skills and expertise, such as those who are skilled in: interpretation (languages and hearing impaired); administration; transportation training; provision of day care; security; computers; clerical work; data entry; and construction. ADPH values all volunteers, even if you have no specific qualifications other than the willingness to help.

How Do I Register?

Registering is as simple as logging in to Alabama Responds and selecting the "Register Now" button on the home page. If you are an existing member of a participating program, please indicate your participation in that program during the registration process. You should have information about your applicable license and contact information available in order to complete the registration process. You may start and stop the registration process at any time. Simply login to the system using the username and password you have created to complete any sections you have not finished.
