Local health, safety and preparedness begins with you
You've have mastered a variety of skills – in medicine, public health, safety, logistics, communications or a number of other areas. Volunteering with the Union County MRC is an effective way to use your skills, while helping to keep your family, friends and neighbors safe and healthy. For example, you may put those skills to use during an emergency, or while providing some services for the most vulnerable members of your community.
Union County MRC volunteers train in order to improve their skills, knowledge and abilities.
In an emergency, local resources get called upon first, sometimes with little or no warning. As a member of the Union County MRC unit, you can be part of an organized and trained team. You will be ready and able to bolster local emergency planning and response capabilities.
Union County MRC volunteers assist with activities to improve public health in our community.
The specific role that you will play, and the activities in which you will participate, will depend upon your background, interests and skills, as well as the needs of the MRC unit, emergency response agencies and the community.
It's up to you.
