Join ASU Medical Reserve Corps


March 06, 2013

Members of the ASU community who are interested in volunteering during medical emergencies at the university may join in a training session on March 30.

Staff, faculty and students who join the ASU Medical Reserve Corps can aid medical personnel at the university’s campuses in case of medical emergencies. They’ll also be able to participate in public-health preparedness events such as flu vaccination clinics, disaster relief drills and dispensing emergency medication.

Volunteers will receive training in CPR and first aid. They’ll also learn how to work with medical personnel to triage patients and learn communication protocols during a disaster. Medical Reserve Corps members will also be trained on the National Incident Management system, health privacy protocol and psychological first-aid basics.
