Navajo County Medical Reserve Corps ( 945 )

Profile:
The Navajo County Medical Reserve Corps, a part of the Navajo County Public Health Services, is being developed to help Navajo County. Navajo County MRC deals with surge capacity in a local disaster, including assisting mass prophylaxis/vaccination clinics or other major public health needs. The unit is partnered with the Red Cross, LEPC, County mental health services, Citizen Corps, and other County resources to develop a coordinated response to a disaster. It is includes but not limited to recruitment of licensed health and medical personnel, including nurses, nurse practitioners, veterinarians, pharmacists, doctors, chiropractors, physician assistants, and dentists, and other community resources in the county. This unit is recruiting members for its MRC by making presentations and/or delivering brochures to its Citizen Corps meetings, meetings of professional organizations, mailings, health fairs, and other community gatherings. The unit has a core of about 230 volunteers and has developed a core curriculum based on the suggested MRC core competencies. These MRC volunteers will be included in exercises being planned by the Navajo County Public Health Services. We encourage all prospective volunteers to register with the MRC by going to Navajo County MRC Webpage. Please contact the Navajo County MRC Coordinator shown in this listing for further information or assistance.
