Call for Emergency Volunteer Health Practitioners
From the Department of Health
The Department of Health is supporting enrollment and activation of emergency volunteer health practitioners for the COVID-19 response. The department can do this under the authority of the Uniform Emergency Volunteer Health Practitioner Act (chapter 70.15 RCW). Under RCW 70.15.050, while an emergency proclamation of the Governor is in effect, a volunteer health practitioner who is licensed in another state may practice in Washington without obtaining a Washington license if he or she is in good standing in all states of licensure and is registered in the volunteer health practitioner system. These emergency volunteers will help meet emerging demands for health practitioners in areas impacted by COVID-19.
The first step for a volunteer to register is to complete the Emergency Volunteer Health Practitioners Application. Applications will be screened to ensure the potential volunteer’s health license is in good standing in each state they are licensed in. After that, the volunteer will be entered into a database of approved emergency volunteer health practitioners. The Washington State Department of Health will activate approved volunteers as needs arise while an emergency proclamation is in effect.
For more information or to register as an emergency volunteer health practitioner for the COVID-19 response visit our website.
Mason County EMS and Trauma Council meets the third Thursday of every month, with the exception of August at the Mason General Learning Center.
