Region 1 Volunteer Support Workgroup
The Region 1 Volunteer Management Support Workgroup has created a Volunteer Reception Center (VRC) activation training video and toolkit reviewing the overall VRC process, station training and station specific job descriptions. The video can be used to train organizations/jurisdictions to setup and staff a VRC. The video demonstrates how to process volunteers during disaster response at the VRC. The toolkit provides training and documents to setup and operate a VRC. This project is a collaboration of the Shiawassee County Health Department, Region 1 Healthcare Coalition, Ingham County Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management, Shiawassee County Emergency Management & Homeland Security Division, Michigan State Police Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division, Mason Public Schools Digital Media/Technology and various volunteer organizations. For more information, contact Jodi DeFrenn, Emergency Preparedness Coordinator for Shiawassee County Health Department at JDefrenn@shiawasseechd.net.
