What is the Medical Volunteer Program?
The MVP of Riverside County supports the Riverside County Emergency Response System and is connected to the state of CA Disaster Healthcare Volunteers as well as the federal Medical Reserve Corps.
The Riverside County unit is community-based and functions to locally organize and utilize volunteers. When a public health emergency occurs, the need for volunteers will be tremendous. MVP will be used to supplement when a disaster is of a magnitude that overwhelms existing resources.
Possible activities you could be involved with staffing at an impacted hospital, dispensing medication, warehouse receiving and shipping, triage at an Alternate Care Site or field hospital, and even could be sent to other counties/states IF YOU WANT.
Training and disaster exercise drills are offered to our volunteers.
