I chose to work at UCHD because I wanted to serve directly in the community in which I am raising my family. I actually had been looking for a job at UCHD since about 2019, but had been waiting for something that I was interested in to open up. I love that I serve my community and work close to home. I also wanted to work for local public health because I feel that it has a more direct effect on the community versus working for higher levels (i.e. state, fed, etc.).

Erin MitchellEmergency Preparedness Coordinator

As a recent OSU grad, I knew I wanted to stay somewhere close to my roots while working to improve public health through the many programs UCHD provides to all Union County residents. UCHD is a welcoming environment for everyone, and going home every day knowing that I am making a difference is extremely rewarding.

Everyone here has made me feel welcome from day one! I chose to come here because I was starting to experience physical limitations from working construction for years. Becoming a Plumbing Inspector gave me the opportunity to stay involved in the trade while simultaneously stepping away from the tasks that were causing me physical discomfort.

Volunteer

Have a passion for promoting health and wellness and serving your community? Then the Union County Health Department is a great place to make a difference! Work alongside our team of dedicated professionals committed to creating the healthiest community possible to help the residents of Union County, Ohio live longer, healthier lives.

The Union County Health Department understands the value volunteers bring to our community and loves to leverage their unique talents, expertise, and passion. While keeping our volunteers engaged is a priority, the foundation for our volunteer corp is built upon the need to respond to public health emergencies. This has never risen more to the surface than the COVID-19 pandemic in which volunteers gave more than 5,300 hours of their time to vaccination, testing, outreach, phone bank, and numerous other activities.

Volunteers for the Union County Health Department are organized under the Ohio Medical Reserve Corp (MRC). The Medical Reserve Corp accepts medical and non-medical volunteers and connects them with our local MRC coordinator so you have the latest information and updates on volunteer opportunities. As an MRC volunteer, you get the training and liability protection you need to give back without worrying about the red tape.

Sign Up Now Before There is a Community Need

One of the greatest challenges in an emergency is managing the huge influx of people that want to help. The best way to tackle this is to sign up in advance. This allows us to take care of the paperwork, proof of licensure if you’re a medical volunteer, and complete any basic training before the community need arises

Union County’s Medical Reserve Corps Mission

The Union County Medical Reserve Corps is committed to establishing teams of volunteers consisting of medical, public health, and other professionals to contribute their capabilities and expertise during times of disaster, public health emergencies as well as throughout the year to promote community health initiatives.

The Union County MRC is a group of passionate volunteers, some with and some without medical backgrounds interested in supporting and improving the health of their community.  Our MRC is a part of a nationwide initiative of over 968 units throughout the country.  Our participation is essential in the treatment of victims of a large-scale disaster or epidemic, administration of vaccines during mass vaccination, distribution of medicine during a chemical or biological attack, assisting in community clinics, supporting other response agencies, or lending a hand with community events.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

Any interested resident of Union County 18 years or older, are encouraged to join.  This includes both medical and non-medical professionals.  If you hold a medical license, that license will be verified to determine your ability to perform certain tasks during a disaster.

WHAT IS REQUIRED?

There is currently no required time commitment. All volunteers must complete the initial orientation. Additional job specific training may be required pending the event and volunteer position. Job specific training is often provided as a “just-in-time” training upon reporting for a volunteer shift or may be shared in advance of the volunteer shift.

WHY SHOULD I JOIN?

The satisfaction of giving back to your community.  The desire to make a difference when you are needed most. Join because of that feeling you had when you watched a disaster on TV and you wanted to do something.  We strive to have capable, prepared, and knowledgeable volunteers to ensure that the citizens of Union County remain as healthy as possible.

WHY DO I NEED TO JOIN THE MRC? CAN’T I JUST SHOW UP?

Volunteers arriving at the incident site, without being trained, without known credentials or without being affiliated with an organization, often hurt instead of help recovery efforts despite their best intentions. Through hard lessons learned, we now know counties experiencing a disaster situation need pre-credentialed, screened and trained medical professionals. The MRC meets these needs by providing an organized, rapid response of volunteers in a disaster.  Waiting to be deployed by the MRC allows us to communicate important messages to better prepare each volunteer for service, and allows us to track all volunteers at the scene so that the response can be safe for everyone.

Liability Protection

Ohio Revised Code Sections 5502.281 and 3701.04 provide liability protection to registered Ohio Medical Reserve Corps volunteers during local, state or federally declared emergencies, disasters, drills, exercises and trainings, and exempts a registered volunteer’s personal information in the Ohio MRC Database from public disclosure.  This protection does not include the provision of any court fees, nor does it cover workman’s compensation.
