Medical Reserve Corp

Kitsap County Emergency Management leaders are calling for local healthcare workers to volunteer with the Medical Reserve Corps for all COVID-19 related activities.


We are updating the list of available volunteers to meet the needs of our community. With the strain COVID-19 has had on our hospital system and its staff, our emergency management leaders want to make sure Kitsap County is prepared to meet ongoing challenges.


These needs could range from assisting with vaccinations and community education to ensuring medical staff has the resources to maintain a high level of care. Volunteers would not be treating COVID-19 patients but would be supporting medical staff in other ways.


Practicing and retired medical, public health, and other allied health professionals are all encouraged to participate, including:

 

  • Physicians, ARNPs, PAs
  • RNs, LPNs
  • Medical Assistants
  • Certified Nursing Assistants
  • Dentists
  • Dental Technicians
  • Pharmacists
  • Pharmacy Technicians
  • Respiratory Therapists
  • Laboratory Technicians
  • Radiology Technicians
  • Psychologists
  • Mental Health Therapists>
  • Social Workers
  • Epidemiologists
  • Chaplains
  • Sign Language Interpreters
  • Funeral Directors
  • Customer Service Representatives
  • Administrators

 

The process to sign up begins with completing the Emergency Worker Registration Form. More details will be provided once we receive your registration!

About the Kitsap County Medical Reserve Corps Mission

The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) mission is to allow local volunteer medical and health professionals to contribute their skills and expertise throughout the year and during times of community need. Medical and health volunteers serve in our Medical Reserve Corps unit during emergencies, such as an influenza epidemic, a chemical spill, or an act of terrorism.

Descriptions for Medical Corps Volunteers may include; First Aid Staff, Health Screener, Medicator-Vaccinator, Medical Counseling Lead, Medical Records Coordinator, Medication-Vaccine Clinic Manager, Sick Assessment Coordinator, Special Needs Leader or Assistant, Supply Router Triage Function Leader, and other functions. Our Medical Reserve Corps volunteers also offer education and prevention services to improve their neighborhoods and communities’ health and well-being.

MRC members will have access to online training materials and receive just-in-time task specific training depending upon their assignment.
