FREEHOLD – The Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office, Office of Emergency Management, and United Way of Monmouth County have launched a recruiting campaign to seek volunteers who can assist in the staffing of evacuation shelters during emergencies.

The program is being conducted through a Memorandum of Understanding that was entered into by both agencies in August 2012 in an effort to increasingly engage other Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD’s) into the Monmouth County Emergency Operations Plan.

The agencies will hold an information and registration session from 10 a.m. until noon Saturday, June 21, at the Monmouth County Office of Emergency Management located at 300 Halls Mill Road, Freehold.

During the session, volunteers from faith-based organizations, civic groups and individuals will be provided with an overview of the training and commitment required to ensure a successful outcome.

Additional information and registration for the information session is available by contacting Kaarina Romero, volunteer center manager for United Way of Monmouth County, at 848-206-2042 or at kromero@uwmonmouth.org.
