The Snohomish County Emergency Response Volunteers (SERV) is made up of volunteers, from Snohomish County with a wide range of experience, that donate their time to support the Emergency Coordination Center (ECC) during activations, trainings and exercises.
The SERV Team provides necessary support functions that allow the ECC to run smoothly and operate efficiently and effectively to provide necessary support to the incident. Team members are needed to assist in the day-to-day support functions of the ECC. Tasks may include monitoring the incoming phone calls, assisting with displays throughout the room, writing Situation Reports (and assisting the Planning Section as a whole), helping to input resource requests (assisting the Resource Section), monitoring the front door and screening visitors, data entry, office assistance, and other responsibilities as needed. These team members are critical to keeping the ECC running safely and efficiently.
To join the SERV Team:
Membership is open to anyone in the community with an interest in providing necessary support to the ECC during a disaster or emergent situation. Volunteers make a commitment to attend monthly trainings, annual exercises, and build a strong team that will interact well with county employees and support agencies during activation.
