Ohio Responds Volunteer Registry

Ohio Responds Volunteer Registry

Ohio Responds provides volunteers already registered with a voluntary organization with limited liability protection, by registering under a parent organization. The registry was developed as a requirement for the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) and the Ohio Emergency Management Agency (Ohio EMA) to jointly share the responsibilities of managing the Ohio Responds volunteer database.
