Emergency Preparedness Plan and Surge Nursing

Montgomery Township Health Department is currently working on updating our preparedness plans and we want to make sure proper procedures are in place for infectious disease outbreaks in the event we need to activate our Emergency Preparedness Plan.

We are looking for additional Registered Nurses to handle things like answer incoming phone calls, screen patients, and vaccinate the community in the event of a pandemic.  We encourage Nurses who live in or work near Montgomery Township to be a part of our Surge Nursing Team.
