A big part of public health is partnering with other local organizations during times of crisis to ensure a strong community support system. The Strafford County Public Health Network is able to identify needs and meet them with resources, often through the great work of the schools, police and fire departments, healthcare, and other organizations which participate in our groups and events. Volunteers are often a key component to making these efforts successful.

New Hampshire Responds is our state's emergency system for advance registration of medical and non-medical volunteers. NH Responds is part of a federal effort to coordinate and assemble volunteers for all types of emergencies. In order to provide New Hampshire citizens a timely and effective disaster or community response, volunteers need to be organized, verified, and ready to mobilize. Whether you are a healthcare provider, administrative specialist, a retired professional - anyone ready to help in your community - New Hampshire needs you. NHResponds.org
