Volunteer with the Norwalk Health Department.

The Norwalk Health Department (NHD) will be forever grateful to the incredible volunteers who gave their time and talent over the past 2.5 years during our community’s COVID-19 response, assisting with food distribution, vaccine clinics, and more. NHD’s Emergency Response Team (ERT) remains essential to our work in public health emergency preparedness and beyond, and now you can be a part of the team! 

NHD is recruiting adults who live or work in the Norwalk area for key positions on the 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 200 people who’ve already been trained and serve on the ERT.

Sign up now! Group interviews for this cohort will be held on August 26, 29 or September 1 at 11:30 am or 6 pm. Training sessions will be held on September 6, 13, 20, or 27 (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.
