Thank you for volunteering for Remote Area Medical. By filling out this form, you will also be signed up through the www.ramusa.org website. As the host, CARE Coalition would like to know additional information that the RAM website does not ask. Not to worry about filling out two forms because we will sign you up through www.ramusa.org as soon as the registration is open. You will receive a confirmation and updates from RAMinfo@CARECoalitionNV.org. Closer to the event, you will receive information directly from Remote Area Medical.
Because patient are seen on a first come, first serve basis, volunteers are most needed early in the morning. Patients are let through the doors, register, and are triaged starting at 6am. Then they are directed to the different service areas, depending on their needs. The health care professionals will determine the end time to the services for that day. Based on past experience, it is usually around 4pm – 6pm. Volunteers are not assigned shifts. Instead, they are asked to come early, and stay as long as they feel up to performing the tasks. Volunteers will be given a RAM Las Vegas shirt to keep. A different color will be given on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (collect all 3!). They will also be fed meals, snacks, coffee, and water.
