Health Advisory

The Delaware Emergency Management Agency, in coordination with the Division of Public Health and other organizations, is working on an orderly and efficient process related to how Delaware can provide assistance in the Hurricane Katrina Relief effort. The Division of Public Health is compiling a roster of healthcare providers in the event Delaware is able to send healthcare personnel to the disaster area.

If you are a healthcare provider and are interested in volunteering to go to the disaster area and provide your services, please send the following information to:

Note: If you are a member of the Medical Society of Delaware please send your information to the Society at:

  • Name
  • Contact information, including telephone number
  • Email address
  • Specialty
  • Hospital name, if employed with a hospital
  • Date available to leave

Due to the uncertainty of the work environment specifically as it applies to health, safety, and personal welfare, we are compiling a list of volunteers. Once the situation is stabilized, volunteers will be contacted via the Division of Public Health with additional information related to the incident taskings and travel arrangements, if the requests from Louisiana, Mississippi, or Alabama remain valid.
