Yavapai County Medical Reserve Corps ( 7 )

Profile:
Medical and non-medical volunteers who assist when local public health or medical surge capacity is needed; many have made themselves available for deployment. Most medical volunteers are not hospital employees, which makes them a true asset if hospital surge capacity is needed. Non-medical volunteers would be used in roles such as traffic control, data entry and communications. Volunteers also help provide routine community services and health education.
