Mission Statement

The mission of the MRC is to engage volunteers to strengthen public health, emergency response and community resiliency.

Description

The City of St. Louis Department of Health is recruiting volunteers, over the age of 18, to assist in operating local Point of Dispensing (POD) sites for delivery of medications in certain public health emergencies or disasters. Major emergencies can overwhelm the capabilities of hospitals and clinics, particularly during the first 12 to 72 hours of a large scale emergency.
Volunteers (medical and non-medical) can play an important role during this critical period to improve overall response capabilities. The City of St. Louis Department of Health is in the process of recruiting medical and non-medical volunteers to contribute their skills and expertise during times of emergency.

For some types of emergencies, such as a bio-terrorist attack or public health pandemic, plans call for dispensing medication to all St. Louis residents within the first 48 hours. Multiple community agencies will assist in operating PODS during an emergency. Volunteers can help!
