Maine Volunteer Health Registry
The Maine CDC is working collaboratively with MEMA (Maine Emergency Management Agency) to develop strategies for a coordinated approach for building a Maine team of volunteers.
Efforts are being organized through EMAC (Emergency Management Assistance Compact); this is a congresssionally ratified organization that provides form and structure to interstate mutual aid.
Nationally, EMAC is being endorsed as the preferred method of enrolling volunteers through states such as Maine who participate in the compact. This was reinforced by the Association of State and Territorial Health Officers (ASTHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on September 6, 2005. Through EMAC, Louisiana and Mississippi have requested, and will receive assistance from member states including Maine.
Interested volunteers should complete the web-based registration form linked below. As we obtain additional guidance through EMAC, volunteers will be contacted with additional information.
