Siouxland District Health Department begins recruitment for the Woodbury County Medical Reserve Corps (WC MRC)mrc_logo

Woodbury County MRC is a volunteer unit that works to enhance local response to disasters or emergency events.  Siouxland District Health Department was awarded a grant from the Office of Civilian Volunteer Medical Reserve Corps and the National Association of County and City Health Officials to help with costs of the MRC.

What is the Woodbury County Medical Reserve Corps?

The WC MRC is part of a nationwide initiative to pre-register, train, manage, and mobilize medical and non-medical volunteers to help the community respond to all types of disasters. The Woodbury County MRC's mission is to assist in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from a variety of disasters, public health emergencies and other community events.  As a WC MRC volunteer you will have the opportunity to help with:

  • Local emergency response exercises / drills
  • Educating the community on personal preparedness
  • Supporting the special needs registry
  • Disaster response such as mass vaccination or distribution clinics, hospital surge
  • Community special events (first aid stations, health fairs, screenings, traffic control, etc
  • Disaster recovery (clean-up from natural disaster, assess physical, mental, emotional needs of residents, completing and compiling applications for assistance, and information sharing)

 

Who should be a WC MRC volunteer?

Anyone who is willing to volunteer their skills, either medical or non-medical, within Woodbury County, IA should consider being a volunteer. WC MRC is looking for people with the following medical skills:  physicians, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacist, dentists, mental health professionals, social workers, first responders. We are also in need of interpreters, office workers, teachers, people with telephone skills, computer skills, and people who have the ability to work with others.

 

How do you become a WC MRC volunteer?

Program administrators will contact you about their expectations for participation, schedule a time for and conduct an informal interview and complete a criminal background check. Once approved, WC MRC volunteers will be asked to register on I-SERV, attend a program orientation, and complete a few basic education / training courses.   If and when activation becomes necessary, the program administrators will contact you via an automated system called "SDHD Alerts".
