Volunteers Needed for Southwest Idaho Medical Reserve Corps
Put your life time of education to use! Be part of the solution by taking action now! By joining the Medical Reserve Corps it means that you are part of the Citizen Corp, a national network of volunteers begun after our 9-11-2001 terrorist disaster. This group assists with emergency planning and response and is dedicated to making sure their families, homes, and communities are safe from terrorism, crime, and disasters of all kinds.
Medical Reserve Corps units are made of locally based, licensed healthcare and community volunteers who can assist their communities during times of emergency, Influenza epidemics, chemical spills, and acts of terrorism and public health events.
Southwest District health provides public health services to Washington, Adams, Canyon, Emmett, Gem, and Owyhee counties. It takes all of us!
Who can join?
Anyone interested in emergency preparedness and public health may apply. We have a place for both medical professionals, and those without specific training. Training for emergency activities occurs during quarterly meetings and through on line courses. Participation in actual emergency events is by your choice. You may find your training being utilized in any organization active in emergency response.
