FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTACT: Melinda Stallworth
(334) 242-1548 The Governor’s Office of Volunteer Services (GOVS), through its partnership with the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH), announces its newly launched Alabama ReadyOp program. This program will collect volunteers and potential reserve staff’s information and send out alerts in the event that the help of qualified retired health professionals and medical students, and related professionals is needed to support efforts. Alabama ReadyOp is a communication tool developed to operate with the goal of sending alerts and sharing public health-related information quickly and efficiently. As a contact within the ReadyOp system, volunteers will receive alerts directly from the GOVS. Alabama ReadyOp is currently seeking recently retired, part-time health professionals and medical students, related professionals and lay people to sign up. The program is also seeking healthcare providers whose offices are closed due to COVID-19 and can offer assistance at this time. GOVS will distribute alerts submitted by ADPH to volunteers based on the severity level through several communications channels. Volunteers can sign up to receive the alerts by visiting www.servealabama.gov/alabamareadyop.
