Disaster can strike at a moments notice and your knowledge, skills and talents can save lives. Are you willing to help your community prepare for and respond to such emergencies?
MD Responds Medical Reserve Corps Charles County Unit (MDRMRC) is made up of health care professionals and community members ready to assist with public health response during emergencies in Maryland and beyond.
The mission of MD Responds is to enhance the emergency preparedness and response capabilities of the state of Maryland through advanced registration, organization, and training of medical and public health volunteers who can be readily mobilized to assist with response and recovery efforts in the event of a natural or man-made public health emergency.
Volunteer roles range from assisting in disasters, mass dispensing operations, offering psychological first aid, to staffing a shelter. The MD Responds MRC also connects you to a wide range of free trainings and exercises on disaster preparedness and response.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Charles County Department of Health (CCDOH). Offering to share your time and talent will benefit the many citizens that visit the Department of Health.
Volunteers are a great resource and the areas and jobs that we use volunteers for include but are not limited to:
To become a CCDOH Volunteer you must submit a registration application. Also, due to being in the presence of children and special populations while volunteering, each applicant will be fingerprinted and a background check will be conducted. The need for such information protects you, our patients, and our Department of Health.
