Be a Hero… Be a Volunteer
Who can Volunteer for the TriCountry MRC?
Protecting the health and safety of nearly 60,000 people within a 8,500 square mile area requires a substantial amount of effort. TriCounty Health Department develops programs and testing plans to protect its citizens during a public health crisis. When faced with a public health emergency, every helping hand can make a difference in reducing illness and saving lives.
The TriCounty Medical Reserve Corps is always seeking volunteers to help make Daggett, Duchesne and Uintah Counties healthier and better prepared in the event of major disaster. Volunteers don’t need a medical background or any special skills to be a part of the MRC, just a willingness to help in a time of need. Unpredictable acts of man or nature can quickly impact our community and could possibly overwhelm our health care system. During times of crisis, the MRC plays a critical role in helping to keep our health care system running smoothly by meeting the needs of not only tri-county area residents, but also persons who may be temporarily relocated to our area during a disaster elsewhere.
MRC volunteers come from many different walks of life. Their common bond is their willingness to serve during a time of need. MRC volunteers receive free training to support public health and other first responders during a health crisis.
MRC Volunteers fill many critical roles during a disaster: greeting and directing people to registration and triage stations, assisting with distribution of food or supplies, managing traffic flow and parking volume, answering phones, and ensuring that people feel comfortable and safe. Persons who speak languages other than English or who know American Sign Language are needed to serve as interpreters.
