Medical volunteers will be needed on the day of the event to help check vital signs. If you are interested in volunteering, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
RED CROSS SHELTER TRAINING & EXERCISE
On Saturday, May 30th, the MRC will be participating in a Red Cross Shelter Training and Exercise. The training and exercise will be held on Saturday, May 30th from 9:00am to 3:30pm. Anyone who plans to volunteer at a shelter during a public health emergency or disaster, such as a flood or hurricane, is highly advised to attend the Red Cross Shelter Training. If you have already attended a Red Cross Shelter Training, please e-mail me so that I can record the training in your volunteer file.

WANT TO JOIN THE SHELTER UNIT TASK FORCE?
Our MRC unit was one of the few units selected to receive extra funding from NACCHO (the National Association of County and City Health Officials). This funding will be used to create a Shelter Unit Task Force comprised of individuals fully equipped and trained in psychological first aid and medical first aid. The Shelter Unit Task Force will be made up of three teams: the Psychological First Aid Team, the Medical First Aid Team, and the Resource/Inventory Team. Members of the Shelter Unit Task Force will be available to deploy when emergency shelters in the county are opened. If you would like to be a part of the Shelter Unit Task Force, please e-mail email@example.com with your interest.
