The Jackson County Medical Reserve Corps (JCMRC) is now recruiting volunteers!
The Medical Reserve Corps is a group I've been a part of for a good while now. Starting back in Newport News, VA at the Peninsula Health Department and then in Fairfax County. The MRC is made up of committed citizens who prepare for and respond to emergencies through public health departments. Medical and public health professionals are needed as well as others to fill support positions.
There will be 2 orientation sessions upcoming in July on the 9th and the 23rd (you only need to attend one). The trainings will be held at Jackson County Health Department in the back building from 10 am to 2pm. Lunch will be provided! You will receive a portable emergency preparedness kit and a travel emergency kit bag along with information to assist you in filling your travel bag. Other benefits include a uniform shirt, handbooks, and future training opportunities.
For more information pre-register with Tsoetsy Harris by July 6th.
