In an effort to ensure equal access to emergency information and services, Public Health - Seattle & King County is working to increase the language capacity and diversity among Public Health Reserve Corps volunteers. We are looking to build our reserve corps with volunteers who are multilingual and can provide culturally appropriate services to king county residents in the event of an emergency or disaster.
As you may know, the demographics of King County are changing and we are becoming increasingly diverse! Approximately 11% of King County residents speak English "not well" and 3% don't speak English at all. By joining the PHRC, you will be working with us to assure equity - before, during and after an emergency. Sign up today and help your community!"
