Public Health Emergency Preparedness Coordinator
The Tuscarawas County Medical Reserve Corps was established in July of 2006, for the purpose of supplementing the Tuscarawas County Health Department’s personnel with volunteers that are medical and mental health professionals and non-medically trained persons from the community.
The primary mission of the MRC Unit is to assist local response efforts during a public health emergency in the county. This may include the mass distribution and administration of antibiotics, antivirals, and vaccines; providing mental health support; and assisting with triage. Other duties may include assisting local agencies with response to natural and man-made disasters and to augment other medical first responders at large scale events or emergencies.
Now, more than ever, it is essential for the safety of our communities that we are prepared for any natural or man-made emergency. As individuals, we all need to take an active part in helping to make our community stronger, safer, and better prepared.
Members must be at least 18 years old, a US citizen or in the country legally, have a valid driver license and if appropriate a valid medical license or certification.
