Welcome to Greenbrier Valley Citizen Corps, CERT,Medical Reserve Corps!
CITIZEN CORPS was created to help coordinate volunteer activities that will make our communities safer, stronger, and better prepared to respond to any emergency situation. It provides opportunities for people to participate in a range of measures to make their families, their homes, and their communities safer from the threats of crime, terrorism, and disasters of all kinds.
CERT - The Community Emergency Response Team program supports local response capability by training volunteers to organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers at the disaster site, to provide immediate assistance to victims and to collect disaster intelligence to support responders' efforts when they arrive.
The CERT Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.
The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) coordinates the skills of practicing and retired physicians, nurses and other health professionals as well as other citizens interested in health issues, who are eager to volunteer to address their community's ongoing public health needs and to help their community during large-scale emergency situations. Greenbrier Valley MRC is a collaboration of volunteer medical professionals serving Greenbrier & Monroe counties in West Virginia.
