Albany County is offering community members the opportunity to be prepared and to help others in emergencies by being a part of the Albany County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC).
MRC helps the county’s preparation efforts with a trained group of healthcare professionals and community volunteers ready for a public health emergency.
According to the county’s Department of Health website, in the event of a public health emergency the department along with community partners will open multiple Point of Dispensing (POD) sites throughout the county. These sites will distribute medication and vaccines to community members.
The MRC is looking for licensed medical professionals which include, physicians/physician’s assistants, nurses—np, rn, lpn, dentists, pharmacists, veterinarians, paramedics, mental health professionals, respiratory therapists, epidemiologists and social workers.
