The Statewide Emergency Registry of Volunteers in South Dakota (SERV SD) coordinates the pre-registration of medical and healthcare professionals who may be willing to volunteer in the event of an emergency. The goal is to register qualified individuals, verify their respective credentials, and provide education and training in the area of disaster response. SERV SD also creates a database of medical and healthcare volunteers who can be mobilized immediately in response to an emergency.
The department understands and respects the sensitivity of the information provided on behalf of volunteers and has taken the following precautions to protect the information:
- Information provided is protected by an industry-standard firewall.
- An SSL certificate ensures secure transactions between Web servers and browsers.
- Authentication is required to access the system via username and password.
- SERV SD will not provide your name and information to agencies without your permission
Participation in a deployment opportunity is optional. You may decide at the time a call is made to volunteer if you are willing and able to respond.
SERV SD is a state-owned-and-operated registry and will not provide your name and information to agencies without your permission.
