MRC GEMS Volunteering
Are you interested in public health or assisting in the current COVID-19 response? MRC GEM is the Medical Reserve Corps Georgia East Metro non-profit organization which responds to community health operations during large-scale emergencies, aiding in response to pressing health care needs, and improves community emergency preparedness. Here's information directly from their website with more details:
There is no minimum commitment. What we ask: that you will try to come help if called in an emergency. We provide all necessary training FREE.
Our members come from all walks of life, not just the medical and health professions.
We are not a military organization (though our name might sound like one). We are a top-to-bottom volunteer organization. We have no ranks per se and are happy for any member to step up and help run MRC GEM - just ask how you can help!
Our goals for our members are:
1. Learn and practice how to be safe and secure in times of disaster.
2. Learn to extend that safety and security to your loved ones.
3. Learn and practice how to be safe when helping others.
4. Learn and practice how to effectively help others.
If you achieve only the first of these goals, you are well on your way to becoming an empowered citizen instead of a victim who needs to be rescued.
Help yourself, your family, and your community prevent and deal with disasters - join MRC GEM!
No medical experience or training is needed. Everyone is welcome to join MRC GEM. Our members come from all walks of life, including the medical and health professions. There is no minimum commitment, though you must complete the basic training requirements to respond in an emergency.
