Whether it is within the Woodburn community, or in the neighborhood at large, you will find many opportunities to share your talents in Woodburn.
One example is Marion County Emergency Management – CERT
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, and disaster medical operations. Using their training, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event and can take a more active role in preparing their community. The motto is “doing the greatest good for the greatest number of people”. The CERT program is administered by the Department of Homeland Security. Visit their website for more information and the contact in your area. www.co.marion.or.us/PW/EmergencyManagement/CCC/cert
Also, check out the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC)
The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) Program strengthens communities by helping medical, public health and other volunteers offer their expertise throughout the year as well as during local emergencies and other times of community need. MRC volunteers work in coordination with existing local emergency response programs and also supplement existing community public health initiatives, such as outreach and prevention, immunization programs, blood drives, case management, care planning, and other efforts. Human Health Services administers the MRC program. Visit www.co.marion.or.us/PW/EmergencyManagement/CCC/MRC for more information.
