About

The Central Vermont MRC (Medical Reserve Corps) is looking for a volunteer to help coordinate emergency and health activities for other MRC volunteers in the Washington County region of Vermont. The coordinator shares emergency and health information and recruits volunteers in different ways, such as tabling at events, postering, and social media; stays in touch with unit volunteers on an ongoing basis; organizes and schedules activities and equipment; and is responsible for related administrative duties.

The coordinator should have an encouraging and friendly manner when working with volunteers and the public; keep volunteer and activity records organized by tracking information in the computer; and be able to remain calm during emergencies.

The time commitment varies from 3 to 12 hours a week. Typically, this includes 1-2 weeknights a month, plus 1-2 weekend days a month for activities. Staff at the Barre District Health Office will support and guide the coordinator in this high visibility and challenging role. This volunteer opportunity provides reimbursement for mileage and approved expenses.

Each of the eight MRC units in Vermont is a group of volunteers that assists the health department, hospitals, and emergency response agencies in times of need, as well as supports local communities with health initiatives and disease prevention activities. Both medical and non-medical volunteers donate their time and expertise to ensure a safe and healthier Vermont.
