ServNY History

Established after 9/11

The ServNY registry is a registry of individuals who have signed up to volunteer on behalf of New York State during an emergency. It was established after the 9/11 terrorist attacks and is currently used by all local health departments and Medical Reserve Corps for management of volunteer programs.

Currently the registry has enrolled over 15,000 volunteers ready to help when needed.

The Office of Health Emergency Preparedness (OHEP) created the ServNY volunteer registry together with county health departments, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the Medical Society of the State of New York, hospital associations, and other medical professional organizations.
