The mission of the Livingston County Public Health MRC is to engage and retain volunteers, both medical and non-medical, to strengthen public health, emergency response and community resilience.

The goal of our MRC is to coordinate with local and regional partners to develop volunteer resources to support public health needs in the community and be prepared to effectively respond to public health events.

DUTIES

We have four key commitments to our volunteer team:

Notification - If a major health emergency occurs, you will be contacted by LCHD and be given specific instructions. Volunteers will be asked to report to a staging area where they will receive information, preventive treatment and job-specific training.

Preventive Treatment - For the safety and peace of mind of volunteers, LCHD will provide preventive treatment to all volunteers and their immediate family, as necessary.

Training - As a volunteer, you will receive quarterly mailings and training on various emergency response topics so that you will be prepared to handle your responsibilities in an emergency.

Preparedness - We hope we never have to activate our Emergency Response Plan. However, if it ever becomes necessary, trained volunteers will know how to protect themselves and their families. The more people that are prepared, the safer our community will be.

Training Information:

  • MRC volunteers receive quarterly mailings and training on various public health preparedness and wellness topics.
  • Volunteers participate in table-top and full-scale emergency response exercises.
  • It is important that we have trained and dedicated volunteers as part of our team. We believe that the more people that are prepared, the safer our community will be.
  • We typically offer training to our volunteers 2-3 times per year. In addition to training, our volunteers have the opportunity to participate in local and regional table-top and full-scale emergency response exercises. Some of our past training sessions include:
  • Incident Command SystemPublic Health Volunteers in training
  • Food Borne Illness and Outbreaks
  • Family Preparedness
  • CPR and First Aid
  • Psychological First Aid
  • Mass Clinic Operations
  • Anthrax Response
  • Pandemic Flu
  • H1N1

The purpose of our training program is to educate and train our volunteers on various public health emergency topics so that we are better prepared to respond to a wide variety of emergency situations, including the recent Influenza A H1N1 outbreak, food-borne illness outbreaks, natural disasters, and other unpredictable biological, radiological, explosive or chemical emergencies. Our emergency response training and exercises help us to better protect our community in a public health emergency.
