20. Medical Reserve Corps

Have you ever considered signing up as a volunteer with your local health district‘s Medical Reserve Corps? Most Ohio health districts have an MRC. While retired licensed medical professionals are obvious MRC candidates, they can use a wide range of skills.

I have been active with the Clark County Combined Health District MRC for many years. I‘ve helped with traffic at flu clinics and assisted with paperwork at Covid-19 sites. MRC activity even opened the door for some part time contract employment with my district.

The Champaign County MRC has a notice in today‘s Springfield News-Sun that they are specifically seeking MRC volunteers. Anyone in ARES District 3 who would like to look into joining their local MRC can go to this statewide website for more information: https://www.ohioresponds.odh.ohio.gov
