Why Volunteer?

Volunteers

You Never Know
When Your Community Might Need You.

The success of our response to a large-scale public health event, such as a pandemic or bioterrorism attack, depends on how quickly and effectively we can mobilize MRC volunteers. MRC units throughout the state actively improve and protect their community’s public health by supporting:

  • Health education and preventative health screenings.
  • Efforts to provide medical services to at-risk populations.
  • Communicable disease outbreak response.
  • Volunteer emergency preparedness training and exercises.
  • Local, state and national response to terrorism attacks and disasters; providing staffing support for medical services, emergency shelters, mental health outreach, dispensing sites for medications and vaccinations, disease investigations and environmental health efforts for food and human safety.
