A Night with the Stars- MRC Open House
Annually, the Dallas County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) hosts an open house for volunteers and those seeking to become volunteers. Whether licensed medical professionals or non-medical, participants learned about the roles they can fill within the organization. The annual open house provides an overview of MRC and what DCHHS has to offer volunteers. MRC volunteers are trained to supplement local medical response to public health emergencies by helping to set up and operate temporary emergency clinics. These clinics are established as a location to dispense mass quantities of antibiotics, vaccinations, or other medications during a local public health emergency. Volunteers are also trained to support emergency medical response to mass sheltering operations. From personal preparedness to psychological and first aid training, DCHHS MRC offers a wide variety of emergency training for medical personnel.
