VTN Volunteer Drivers - based out of Ely MN
VTN (Volunteer Transportation Network) Volunteer drivers provide transportation to Veterans locally within the North East MN area for their appointments. This could be to the Hibbing CBOC, Ely CBOC, Twin Ports CBOC or Community Care appointments as far as Duluth. Drivers start and end their day in Ely and use a DAV supplied van to transport our Veterans. Shifts are Monday through Friday.
With current safety policies and procedures during the COVID pandemic, all who enter the facility are required to wear a face mask. Additionally, Volunteer drivers are required to wear a face mask during transport of patients who are also required to wear a face mask while in the vehicle. Volunteer drivers are also required to disinfect/sanitize the DAV vehicles between transports with provided supplies.
Volunteer drivers must:
Pass a basic physical exam with Minneapolis VA Occupation Health
Provide, and maintain, a copy of their safe driving record
Provide proof of personal automobile insurance
Consent to fingerprinting and successfully pass background check
Complete VA medical center and DAV volunteer drivers initial and annual trainings
