Arizona Sonshine teaming up with AZDEMA and AZVOAD
Should the COVID-19 crisis escalate, Agencies such as AZDEMA may be asked to construct mobile medical units throughout Arizona, most likely in Phoenix and/or Tucson. Arizona Sonshine has been setting up mobile medical units for over 5 years and if needed, can offer experienced teams of volunteers. While we have yet to receive any details, Arizona Sonshine has offered to team up with AZDEMA and AZVOAD to encourage our volunteers to consider registering and when the crisis escalets then we will be ready to act.
Volunteers will be needed in both healthcare and non-healthcare capacity in areas such as pastor/chaplain and construction/assembly of the mobile medical units.
Register as a VOLUNTEER for this event.
