Employee deployment program and how you can help 

The Emergency Deployment Program was developed to support the critical staffing needs that are part of this emergency response. These roles do not have contact with patients but do provide the vital backbone of support needed to run our facilities, which house individuals, families, and small children during this difficult time. We also have staff who have worked tirelessly organizing emergency operations and are in need of relief. You can play a huge role in supporting the County’s ongoing response to this emergency. Please consider applying for the Emergency Deployment Program. 

Work assignments include:

  • Emergency Site Worker III – Administrative staffing for quarantine facilities, assessment and recovery facilities and the Emergency Operations Center (EOC). Some weekends and OT may be needed.
  • Emergency Site Worker IV – Site managers for quarantine facilities or assessment and recovery facilities. All shifts including night and weekend workers needed. This position also serves as Emergency Operations Branch managers to lead ongoing work units in the EOC and Project Management for various locations and units.

We are seeking employees who have supervisor approval to commit to a minimum of one month.  Training and scheduling will be confirmed by the requesting department. Here is a video that provides a quick look at our location in Kent and the great work that has already started.
