Trained volunteers may be needed to assist in dispensing medicines or administering immunizations for a large number of persons, help with medical special needs mass care operations, augment the medical surge capacity within our region, and provide support for spontaneous volunteer reception centers. Public health and emergency management agencies are working together to recruit, train and utilize a regional corps of volunteers.
