Northwest Vermont Medical Reserve Corps ( 2482 )

Profile:
Our Unit is just getting off the ground. We are in the midst of writing our bylaws for the Advisory Committee and have started with establishing objectives and a mission statement. The need for more trained and established volunteers presented itself when we were participating in a Med Surge/Mass care tabletop exercise. The mission of this MRC will be: To maintain a well trained team of medical and non-medical volunteers dedicated to the health and wellness of its community. This MRC has an Advisory Committee that comprises 7 individuals with very diverse backgrounds. The Police, American Red Cross and Public Health are well represented.
