Volunteer in an Emergency

We are grateful to everyone looking to volunteer! 

If you are interested in volunteering with the Washtenaw County Health Department please complete our Volunteer Interest Survey and complete a profile in the MI Volunteer Registry.

Volunteer Interest Survey:

  • We will contact people that have completed the survey based on your availability and our current volunteer needs.
  • Please complete the survey if you would like to be contacted. 
  • Completing the survey is NOT signing up to volunteer. There are multiple steps to becoming a volunteer.  
  • It may take us a while to contact people that have completed the volunteer interest survey. Thank you for your patience.

MI Volunteer Registry:

This system provides license and background checks, as well as tracks essential information we may need in a response. All volunteers must complete a profile in the MI Volunteer Registry.
