Washington County MRC Volunteer
2 people are interested
As a member of the Washington County Medical Reserve Corps, you will have the opportunity to work in both emergency and non-emergency roles. Through trainings, drills, exercises, and non-emergency volunteer opportunities you will become familiar with our community’s response plans, who our response partners are, and where your skills can be utilized to their best advantage in an emergency situation. The Washington County Medical Reserve Corps will play an integral role in our local preparedness and response strategy. The role of Washington County MRC volunteers will vary depending on the needs of our communities or the cause of the deployment. The Washington County MRC is intended to supplement existing emergency response and public health systems.
Major community emergencies may arise from natural (tornado, flooding), technical (sewage back up, power outage), or intentional (biological, chemical or other terrorist) events. In the event of an emergency that impacts or threatens the health of a large number of our citizens, or presents health issues in the county, the Washington County Medical Reserve Corps will be asked to deploy along with WCPHE staff and other responders in the following emergency responses:
· Mass vaccination
· Mass prophylaxis
· Mass medical care
· Communicable disease control
· Disease and foodborne illness investigation
· Seasonal vaccination clinics
· Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP) training and support
· Targeted public awareness campaigns
· Public health and environmental health support roles
· Community health, environmental or emergency preparedness education
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
