There are two types of MRC volunteers:
Health care professionals from all health occupations to include practicing and non-practicing. These volunteers include: medical doctors, physicianï¿½s assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, EMTs, paramedics, pharmacists, mental health professionals, respiratory therapists, massage therapists, physical therapists, dentists, veterinarians and more.
Support volunteers are just as essential in our ability to respond to a public health emergency. The role of support volunteers varies by the type of incident the MRC is responding to. Support volunteers include: interpreters, administrative support specialists, clergy members, database managers, health educators, mortuary professionals, communications professionals, and more.
Community members older than 16, but who have not yet reached their 18th birthday are welcome to volunteer along with their parent or guardian.
