Emergency Preparedness Programs
Hudson Medical Reserve Corps
Hudson Health Department maintains a Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) unit, as a part of the larger Massachusetts Region 4A Medical Reserve Corps. Our MRC unit are volunteers from medical professionals, such as doctors, nurses, and pharmacists, as well as non-medical residents. In the past, our MRC unit volunteers helped us in staffing our emergency vaccine dispensing sites during the H1N1 influenza pandemic, emergency shelters during several hurricanes and the 2008 ice storm, and our annual community flu clinics. For more information about MRC in general, please visit the national MRC website within the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services.
