The Medical Reserve Corp of Freeborn County (MRCFC) is part of a nationwide initiative to pre-register, manage and mobilize volunteers to help their communities respond to all types of health disasters. The mission of the Medical Reserve Corp of Freeborn County is to assist our county by providing a volunteer base to support Public Health in all types of emergencies and disasters.
We are looking for volunteers interested in helping during a public health emergency. You do not need a medical background-all our members may contribute and make a difference. We have opportunities for people with diverse skills and interests. Common attributes of an MRC volunteer are flexibility during an assignment, ability to take direction in a command structure, and willingness to prepare themselves and their families ahead of time for local emergencies and disasters in order to be available to volunteer with short notice.
Volunteers are asked to attend an orientation and complete various trainings based on the core competencies from the National Office of the Civilian Volunteers Medical Reserve Corp. If you are interested in joining the Medical Reserve Corps of Freeborn County, go to the state-wide volunteer registry-Minnesota Responds MRC at: www.mnresponds.org.
