The core competencies were developed by the national Office of Civilian Volunteers Medical Reserve Corps (OCVMRC) and National Association of City and County Health Officials (NACCHO) to create standards for training so MRC Unit members across the US will have a common set of knowledge, skills and abilities.
The goal of a standard level of training and skills is to make collaboration amongst MRC units and external partners more efficient. This facilitates the activation and deployment of MRC units or their individual members to emergency response missions locally, statewide, nationwide and potentially internationally. Beyond deployment, MRC members will be eligible for national MRC resources, such as trainings and conferences, for which regular medical volunteers do not qualify.
Trainings required by the Napa County MRC are:
The Napa County MRC Unit will assess our members’ competencies two ways. First through participation in training, exercises and real events. Please review the table to determine if you have already completed training either with Napa County, online, your place of employment or another agency. To document participation we ask MRC members to update their training profile in the DHVC system with completed courses.
If you have proof of completion, such as certificates, please email, mail or fax a copy to: PHPreparedness@countyofnapa.org
