Volunteers Building Strong, Healthy and Prepared Communities
The Alexandria Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a unit of local medical and non-medical volunteers who are ready to respond to public health emergencies and who strengthen the emergency preparedness and daily services of Alexandria Health Department.
We are always looking for people with a variety of backgrounds – medical, public health, emergency management, administrative, mental health, logistics, human resources, etc. In an emergency, the Alexandria Health Department cannot fulfill its mission without the help of its medical and non medical volunteers. Our volunteers can help give vaccines, greet people, support in data entry, provide childcare, offer administrative or emotional support and much more!
In addition to assisting during an emergency or disaster, our volunteers often help with day-to-day public health activities at the Alexandria Health Department. Many of our programs need volunteers to conduct surveys, provide health education or offer simple administrative support.
There are multiple levels of participation – after attending an initial two-hour orientation; it's whatever time you can provide. To find out more, click on Levels of Participation.
Register online! As an MRC volunteer, you will have opportunities to participate in:
- Emergency preparedness training and exercises
- Public health prevention education and outreach
- Community emergency preparedness education and outreach activities
- Public health response to communicable disease outbreaks
- Supporting the Alexandria Health Department community services
