Help keep our community safe in a Public Health Emergency! 

H1N1 Flu, Seasonal Flu, EEE, Hepatitis A, Bioterrorism, Meningitis

…there certainly has been a lot of discussion of these threats in the press lately.  There has also been a lot of activity in our state and region to prepare for and protect our residents from these threats.  Public safety and health professionals from 23 municipalities in the greater Concord area, a group known as the Capital Area Public Health Network (CAPHN), are working to develop a regional public health emergency response plan. 

This plan will help us to vaccinate or get antibiotics to a large number of people in a short amount of time in the event of a pandemic. Your town and family is included in this plan. 

Even if we have the best plan, we know that in the event of an emergency, we will need volunteers like you to help with a variety of tasks. These tasks would require expertise from many persons of different backgrounds.

Volunteers will be provided with training on how you can help us respond to public health emergencies. By indicating your interest early, you will be sure to receive the proper training to become an effective volunteer. Many volunteers were turned away after Hurricane Katrina because they didn’t have the necessary training and the first responders didn’t know them.

Signing up on our volunteer list does not obligate you to participate. It merely indicates that you wouldn’t mind if we called upon you in an emergency.  All information provided will be kept confidential.

With your help we can be sure our families and communities stay safe and healthy and they get the best response in an emergency!

If you are interested please complete the attached volunteer information sheet and return it to Mary Reed, 24 Horseshoe Pond Lane, Concord, NH 03301. Please call 228-2712 or email Mary with any questions.
