DCHHS recognizes MRC volunteers at appreciation and training event

DCHHS recognized the dedicated service of Dallas County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) volunteers at an appreciation and training event.

MRC was a strong partner during the October 2014 Ebola outbreak. More than 90 volunteers responded, serving in the call center and for community education. Also in October 2014, more than 60 MRC volunteers served in a POD exercise in Irving. The Best Southwest POD exercise last May had a tremendous turn-out. More than 150 MRC volunteers participated to conduct a drill in four locations simultaneously: Cedar Hill, DeSoto, Duncanville, and Lancaster. This past November, MRC volunteers were present at a Psychological First Aid Training learning how to approach and counsel individuals affected by disasters.

Their ongoing service doing outreach and education with schools, community organizations, and at health, safety, and preparedness fairs are vital to our continued success in making sure Dallas County citizens are disaster ready. MRC volunteers are in the fold, ready and equipped to answer the call.
