The Medical Reserve Corps is a national network of local groups of volunteers engaging local communities to strengthen public health, reduce vulnerability, build resilience, and improve preparedness, response and recovery capabilities.
Here is some detailed information about the Medical Reserve Corps: https://mrc.hhs.gov/HomePage
“Local first responders will be quickly overwhelmed in a public health emergency. Skilled volunteers will be crucial to the success of our local community response.”

Also, it is very important to register on line on Ohio Responds at: https://www.ohioresponds.odh.ohio.gov/
This Ohio Responds registration allows for volunteers to be covered for liability.
