Concord’s Medical Reserve Corps is a committed group of volunteers, with and without medical backgrounds, who help keep our community safe by responding to public health emergencies. Recent events have taught us that all towns and cities need to be ready for anything, including natural disasters, terrorism, and disease.
The Concord MRC is part of the Concord Emergency Management Agency (CEMA) and works in conjunction with the Fire and Police Departments and the Citizen Emergency Response Team (CERT). By volunteering, you can help ensure that all of Concord’s citizens, especially the most vulnerable, receive the care they need during a public health crisis. This might include staffing a shelter, assisting at an immunization clinic, or being available to respond to a natural disaster such as an ice storm, flood, or tornado.
Both medical and non-medical volunteers are needed. If you have skills you’d like to share—medical training as well as behavioral health and social work, or organizational, logistics and planning skills—the Concord MRC is a great place to volunteer.
