South Central Tennessee Regional Medical Reserve Corps ( 1615 )

Profile:
In 2003, the South Central Regional Health Office began recruiting and training volunteers to respond in the event of a public health emergency. The South Central Tennessee Region is a twelve county region in south central middle Tennessee with approximately 1,235 volunteers representing the population, along with 256 Public Health. The database consists of non-medical and medical volunteers. Volunteers were initially trained to assist during smallpox mass clinics. Since then volunteers have participated in annual training and exercises to better prepare them to respond in any emergency for which they are needed. Training includes the POD 48-hour dispensing model, NIMS and ICS, pandemic influenza, and personal preparedness. Our unit is currently recruiting and registering new members.
