Interested in joining NEMCo? Membership is not required to be a NEMCo community volunteer. However, we do recommend obtaining a NEMCo membership as a credentialed Emergency Worker, which involves a background check and being registered as a Washington State Emergency Worker to support vital volunteer roles during events or a disaster.
Volunteer Service Agreement (fillable PDF)
Emergency Worker Credential Application (.docx) (current as of 27 April 2021)
requires that volunteers must be either CERT graduates or HAM radio-licensed, and completion of the following Incident Command System (ICS) classes offered by FEMA's Emergency Management Institute.
CODE OF CONDUCT - Draft (comment period closed)
The NEMCo Code of Conduct is a draft document that once final will become a required document for all certified Volunteer Emergency Workers. Please note that some of the referenced documents are still undergoing internal drafting and review and will be added here once available.
