Volunteer through ServNY for Schoharie County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC)

In cooperation with the New York State Department of Health, The Schoharie County Health Department is proud to be participating in ServNY , a comprehensive volunteer management system created to assist officials during public health emergencies.

Public Health and healthcare emergencies caused by natural disasters, terrorist attacks, or disease outbreaks require a health and medical response that depends primarily on the mobilization of qualified, well-trained personnel. Volunteers will be called upon when the response to an emergency or disaster requires more personnel and resources than local emergency response programs have on hand. Not every emergency will require volunteers. Volunteers may be called upon to dispense medications and vaccinations, treat evacuees in an emergency shelter, or assist in many other ways.

The Schoharie County Health Department MRC is a registry of healthcare and non-healthcare personnel who volunteer to provide assistance in an emergency or major disaster in Schoharie county. Registering does not guarantee that you will be called upon, nor does it mean that you must participate. By completing the registration prior to an emergency you can be deployed quickly and efficiently during an actual event. Volunteers will receive free advance training and "on the spot" training if their services are ever needed.
