We are committed to making our community safer, healthier, and more resilient.

We participate in the Southeast Regional Healthcare Emergency Readiness Coalition (HERC), which partners with healthcare facilities, public safety, and first responders.  The coalition supports communities before, during, and after disasters and other health-related crises. 


In the event of a disaster or public health crisis in the community, we rely on volunteers to assist with emergency response.  Because emergency situations often occur without warning, we ask volunteers to register ahead of time.  You are then contacted if assistance is needed.  Any required training is done on-site at the time of the event.

If you would like to help keep your community safe during and after an emergency, please consider becoming an emergency preparedness volunteer!  

You can register through the Wisconsin Emergency Assistance Volunteer Registry (WEAVR), an online registration system for volunteers willing to serve in an emergency.  

You can register using this link: www.weavrwi.org

During the registration, please select “Wauwatosa Health Department” as your organization.
