To begin the process of becoming a volunteer, please create an account on Ohio Responds - Volunteer Registry. The next step is to complete the MRC Membership form. Once these are completed, we will register you as a community volunteer and keep your credentials in our database for public health response.

What is the time commitment of being a volunteer?

You can participate in as little or as many trainings and exercises as you would like. The only requirement is to attend one training session every three years. Professional development classes can count for this requirement if a certificate of completion is forwarded to the MRC Coordinator.
