Volunteers needed for mock disaster

Posted on

The Office of the Vice Provost for Health is seeking volunteers from the campus community to donate time during a mock disaster planned at the Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences in early May.

Grand Valley’s Emergency Preparedness Team, county and local officials will use CHS as an alternate care site to Spectrum Health during the mock disaster, which is set for May 2-3.

Volunteers of all skill levels will be needed as alternate care site workers and victims. People interested in volunteering can contact Kathi Vande Guchte at Spectrum Health at (616) 391-1073 or Kathi.VandeGuchte@spectrumhealth.org.

Students, faculty and staff members who would like to volunteer during the event of a real community disaster are asked to register online with the Michigan Volunteer Registry, www.mivolunteerregistry.org. For more information, contact Katie Branch at branchka@gvsu.edu or (616) 331-2729.
