Local Public Health and Medical Reserve Corps and WI-1 DMAT Local
Administrators: Training Session is archived below for your convenience.
This session was recorded on September 18, 2013. It contains information
about WEAVR system changes in place since June 2013.
The Wisconsin Emergency Assistance Volunteer Registry,
or WEAVR, is a secure, password-protected, Web-based volunteer registration
system for health care and behavioral health professionals. Volunteers interested in filling critical
response and recovery roles following a major public health emergency self-register and are the only ones that can update
Statute Chapter 257 (exit DHS) provides
liability and worker's compensation for specified licensed health
professionals deployed as volunteers during a declared emergency.
To be considered for this coverage, you must join WEAVR.
Based on the information collected from each volunteer, public health
officials identify those individuals willing
to fill the specific
volunteer roles needed in
an emergency. Public health officials will use the WEAVR registry to generate
a list of volunteers to be contacted. Those contacted will be given information on where to report and the
role that is needed, as well as the option to accept or decline the
opportunity. Training will be provided at the reporting site.
