Hunterdon County Medical Reserve Corps volunteers work with existing agencies to provide surge capacity during large-scale events. Volunteers are an asset to any emergency operation and are trained in a variety of topics including biological agents, mass clinic operations, infectious diseases, emergency sheltering, and emergency preparedness. Examples of potential volunteer responses include working in a mass medication/vaccination clinic setting, providing care at an evacuation shelter, operating phone banks to answer questions from the public, assisting with data entry, as well as many other roles. We are looking for medical and community volunteers to respond to public health emergencies and promote the health and safety of our community. Here are some examples of volunteers who are involved with our unit:

Mental Health Professionals
Former Military Personnel
Translators / Interpreters

Data Entry Staff
All other community members with a passion to volunteer!!
