The State Emergency Registry of Volunteers-Nevada (SERV-NV) is a secure, web-based system used to register, qualify and credential Nevada’s healthcare professionals before a major public health or medical emergency. From this site registrants may elect to join local Medical Reserve Corps, Statewide Volunteer Pool, or Mental Health Crisis Counselors.
SERV-NV, Nevada’s registry for Emergency System of Advance Registration for Volunteer Health Professionals (ESAR-VHP). ESAR-VHP is a national network of state-based systems, which verifies the identity and credentials of health professionals so that they can more readily volunteer for disaster, public health, and medical emergencies.
By registering through SERV-NV, volunteers’ identities, licenses, credentials, accreditation, and hospital privileges are all verified in advance of a public health and medical disaster or emergency.
If you are interested in signing up to volunteer as a clergy person, consider signing up at servnv.org for Battle Born Medical Corp. Other states are accomplishing this through video link, with no in person contact allowed. Likely that will be the case here in Nevada. The peak is not scheduled until May in Northern Nevada. If you sign up now, it gives them time to do a background check in advance.
Be well, Beth
