NHD hosting “Introduction to Tristate Medical Corps"

We just received this flyer from Norwood Health Commissioner Donna Laake describing the critical need for local volunteers to sign up for the Tristate Medical Reserve Corps. With only 6 fulltime employees to handle emergency disasters, the Norwood Health Department needs “average citizens, both medical and non-medical, who have volunteered to receive basic training and assist us in an emergency… TMRC volunteers can be as active as they choose and can respond in areas that they designate. If someone wants to only volunteer in Norwood, that’s fine.”

This Thursday evening, April 24, the NHD is hosting an “ “Introduction to the Tristate Medical Reserve Corps” at Norwood High School for anyone who might be interested in volunteering. There’s no requirement to sign for the TMRC even after taking part in the training.

When: Thursday, April 24 from 6 - 8 p.m.
Where: Mini Auditorium at Norwood High School, 2020 Sherman Avenue
Reservations: Call the Health Department at 458-4600 or email
Bonus: A light meal and refreshments will be served.
