When the big one hits, Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) volunteers may be called on to provide emergency assistance, like staffing medication dispensing sites, shelters or vaccination clinics. You do not have to be a doctor or nurse, or even have a medical background, to become a volunteer with the MRC. Any skill you bring to our program is critical in an emergency response, and we can use it to assist our communities in times of need.
Fairfax MRC Through Time
Whether assisting the Health Department with its daily operations, providing community outreach and support in our community flu clinics, participating in MRC exercises and training opportunities, or responding to emergencies, Fairfax MRC volunteers have invested so many hours in promoting health in the community and ensuring that families are safer and better prepared for emergencies in the Fairfax communities. Get a glimpse into our program and the wonderful people who make up our team.
