Whether you’re a healthcare professional, educator, laborer, business person or even a retiree, the Ross County Health District offers a variety of volunteer opportunities through the Ross County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC).

MRC volunteers work together to keep Ross County healthy, prepared, and quick to recover by

  • providing help for public health and emergency response.
  • participating in mass vaccinations and community disaster drills.
  • promoting disease prevention and control.
  • assisting the public health department in a variety of ways.

Who Can Become a MRC Volunteer?
Anyone 18 years of age and older. We are looking for medical professionals and other skilled personnel who can provide basic support services during emergency and non-emergency events. There is a role for everyone!

What do MRC Volunteers Do?

Your skills and knowledge are especially needed during times of crisis. In a large scale emergency, you may be needed

  • to treat victims of a disaster
  • asked to help at an emergency vaccination clinic
  • assist at a medication distribution site.

During times of non-emergency, you can

  • attend preparedness training
  • have the chance to serve as public health ambassadors
  • assist with flu clinics
  • provide education sessions on special topics, volunteer for public health events or trainings, and promote immunization campaigns.

In the event of a disaster, emergency or epidemic, we need “hands on deck” to provide assistance to the 78,000 residents of Ross County. Are you ready to take on the challenge and volunteer?
