When Disaster Strikes - Healthcare professionals on the front line could be the only real hope that victims of a major catastrophe have. Welcome to the site for the Los Angeles County Disaster Healthcare Volunteers – Surge Unit. Our challenging goal is to recruit and pre-register quality medical, health, mental health and other “difference makers” such as yourself in advance of a widespread emergency incident. With time so crucial, this helps to accelerate the deployment process once the event occurs. Please take a moment to register and to find out how you can play a vital part in saving lives and renewing spirits.
