Central Vermont MRC #5 ( 2490 )

Profile:
The Central Vermont Medical Reserve Corps #5, a part of the Local Emergency Planning Committee, is being developed to help Washington and parts of Orange Counties. Upper Valley MRC #5 will help deal with surge capacity in a local disaster, including assisting mass prophylaxis/vaccination clinics or other major public health needs. The unit is partnered with the Vermont Department of Health, Red Cross, County mental health services, Citizen Corps, Central Vermont Medical Center and other local and state resources to develop a coordinated response to a disaster. We are recruiting licensed health personnel and non licensed professionals. This unit is recruiting members for its MRC by making presentations and/or delivering brochures to its 23 town's service area. We also plan to do direct mailing to our local first response entitites. The unit has a core of about 20 volunteers and has developed a core curriculum based on the suggested MRC core competencies. These MRC volunteers will be included in exercises being planned by the district Department of Health Services. We encourage all prospective volunteers to register with the MRC by going to the Vermont Emergency Response Volunteer site. From that point, the candidate will be vetted. Please contact the Central Vermont MRC #5 Coordinator shown in this listing for further information or assistance.
