Woodford County Medical Reserve Corps Seeks Volunteers
The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a national network of community-based groups of volunteers who assist their communities in activities that promote and strengthen public health outreach and emergency response. The Medical Reserve Corp is designed to recruit, train, and mobilize willing members of the community who have the skills, knowledge, and desire to help others in need during a disaster.
Locally, the Woodford County MRC is looking for medical, public health professionals, and community members that are eager and willing to help their neighbors. Volunteers will perform duties that match their background, skills and expertise. Medical Reserve Corps volunteers may be called to assist during emergencies and disasters. Additionally, volunteers may assist with community outreach efforts.
Interested residents must pass a background check, and attend training before becoming an official Woodford County Medical Reserve Corp. volunteer.
