Temporary Security Officer
The state has an immediate need to assist with the COVID-19 pandemic, and you have an opportunity to help. Do you have a certain type of skill or service North Dakota could call on, if needed?
You can help us make a difference during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Workforce Coordination Center (WCC) is managing a pool of potential workers and volunteers to help as North Dakota business and emergency workforce needs change. Current or lapsed licenses or certifications are a bonus, but not necessary.
A variety of skills are needed in these places and areas of expertise:
Emergency shelters, congregate living facilities, drop-in centers
Law enforcement, public safety, and first responders
Healthcare and public health
Food and agriculture
Water and wastewater
Transportation and logistics
Two registration processes are established for individuals who are willing and available to assist in this fight, the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) and the WCC.
MEDICAL RESERVE CORPS
The MRC is designed to have a pool of health and medical personal to recruit and deploy for a specific mission, typically deployed as a team to an emergent situation. This program has existed since 2002 and used to call up volunteers to respond to in-state and out-of-state missions.
WORKFORCE COORDINATION CENTER
The WCC was established to create a pool of potential workers and volunteers that can be available to help as the COVID-19 pandemic progresses. The WCC provides an online request for assistance to be made by facilities, businesses and agencies that need to fill a position.
Individuals who want to be hired by a facility for a specific position should register with the WCC. Those who are interested in being deployed to respond to an emergent situation should register with the MRC. Click on the corresponding link below to register:
