If you choose to become a registered MCFNES volunteer, you will be asked to fill out a registration form and consent to a background check. We will also ask you to become a member of our partner group, the Medical Reserve Corps. The background check will be conducted by the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC), and you will be asked to complete a short MRC training course (less than one day). These are the only requirements of MCFNES volunteers.
Volunteers who would like to be more actively engaged with the MCFNES will have opportunities to participate in MCFNES exercises, and a variety of MRC training courses and volunteer opportunities with MRC.
If the MCFNES is opened in response to a disaster or emergency, only registered volunteers will be called to respond.
Shifts will be scheduled in 8 hour blocks, to the extent possible. We understand that there may be circumstances which may allow or require some variation from this.
Volunteers will be asked to assist at the shelter only if they can do so without risking their own safety or the safety of their family.
