La Paz County Medical Reserve Corps ( 540 )

Profile:
La Paz County Medical Reserve Corps unit was started in October 2006 in an effort to supplement the local Public Health Department in the event of a public health emergency. La Paz County MRC serves the entire county. We are a small rural county and depend heavily on volunteers. There is finally a small following, but we're growing every day. La Paz County experiences a population surge each winter with the many winter visitors that make La Paz County their second home. We welcome these temporary residents in our MRC unit. We are trying to recruit as many people as possible to support us in our efforts. Come and see if together we make a good match.
