Should You Volunteer?
Do YOU want to help when a disaster strikes?
If so, you have come to the right place!
During an event with health and medical consequences, hospitals, local health departments, and other healthcare facilities may experience a surge or overflow in patients, thus requiring additional resources to properly attend to these patients.  The needs are always great.  Volunteers may be called upon to assist emergency staff in meeting the needs of these patients locally, statewide or even nationally.  Experience has shown that our citizens are always eager to volunteer their skills and services.  In the past, hospitals and other medical facilities have found it difficult to use volunteers efficiently because of the need and the requirement to verify a volunteer health professional’s credentials prior to accepting their assistance.   SCSERV is a tool used by DHEC Emergency Preparedness Personnel to verify credentials in advance to meet the needs of our citizens during emergencies.
Registration on SCSERV does not obligate a volunteer to serve during a disaster. You do not have to be a health professional to volunteer.  If an event requiring volunteer assistance occurs, appropriate public health officials will use SCSERV to generate a list of potential volunteers, based on skills and skill levels, and other information provided during registration in SCSERV.  Those listed will be contacted and given information regarding the event, including where they would need to report, and will be given the opportunity to accept or decline service as a volunteer.  
Thank you for considering registration as a volunteer!
