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 would be needed.

Students, faculty and staff members who would like to volunteer are asked to register online with the Michigan Volunteer Registry, www.mivolunteerregistry.org. For more information, contact Katie Branch at branchka@gvsu.edu or x12729.

Volunteers are also needed as victims. That portion of the mock disaster is coordinated by Department of Emergency Preparedness. People interested can contact Kathi Vande Guchte at (616) 391-1073 or Kathi.VandeGuchte@spectrumhealth.org.
