Medical Reserve Corps members needed

ROCHESTER, Minn. – Local health officials are looking for people who want to help others.

Right now there are opening in Olmsted County for the Medical Reserve Corps. Basically, what people in the corps will do is help during disasters, such as the H1N1 virus outbreak back in 2009. Back then, volunteers helped give out shot vaccines to those who needed it. “So when we look at a disaster we will be able to gather those volunteers ahead of time. It helps us know who they are, what their skill set is, and appropriately place them in the right positions for that disaster,” Emergency Preparedness Coordinator for Olmsted County Public Health Amy Evans said.
