Drivers License & Vehicle Information
The State of PA requires that all motorist have a valid drivers's license and proof of insurance. As many of our official activities require driving your personal vehicle or may require you to drive a team owned vehicles, it is necessary for us to ask for this information. Failure to supply this information will not affect your application to volunteer
Emergency Contact Information
Due to the multitude of other agencies or organizations that Pennsylvania Emergency Response Center works closely with, it is important for us to know what other organizations, clubs, etc. that you my currently belong to. This information will enable us to determine the amount of time that you may be able to contribute as a volunteer of Pennsylvania Emergency Response Center in time of emergency. For example, belonging to a Volunteer Fire Department may cause a conflict if Pennsylvania Emergency Response Center is called out at the same time to help with the fire or other disaster. Your duties with the VFD take priority over those in Pennsylvania Emergency Response Center, thus making you unavailable at that time. No Volunteer is expected to be 100% available. There will always be time when your family, church, employment or other obligations may take priority over Pennsylvania Emergency Response Center Team meeting or activities
