Dear New Haven Residents,

We are facing many challenges in our response to COVID-19. There is a shortage of protective equipment for our first responders, like N95 masks, and people have been donating supplies; however, we need people to step up and help us on the ground.

We need volunteers, doctors, nurses, and medical professionals to help out with our COVID-19 response by signing up with the Medical Reserve Corps. I am urging you to share this email in your network to get others in your circles to sign up for the MRC.  The New Haven MRC is open to medical and non-medical volunteers. For more information to sign up, click below.

Thank you for all your help in this challenging time. Together we will get through this.

Always serving you,

Mayor Justin Elicker

Sign up for the MRC

The New Haven MRC is open to medical and non-medical volunteers 18 years of age and older. Whether you are retired, active in your profession, a community member, or a student, we need your assistance in the New Haven MRC. There is a growing need for volunteers with medical experience and role each of you can serve. Volunteers receive free training and then are asked to be available on an as-needed basis. You could be asked to volunteer on weekends, late at night, or first thing in the morning. New Haven volunteers may be deployed to a shelter or a public health site.

We need our New Haven MRC volunteers to assist in the following tasks:

  • Provide medical screening and support in mass care settings.
  • Assist with patient tracking at planned events.
  • Support medical countermeasures (MCM) distribution and dispensing activities.
  • Assist with planned and unplanned public health activities

By signing up to be a New Haven MRC volunteer, you will gain valuable emergency preparedness knowledge and experience through training, exercises, and real-world events. You will train and work alongside government agencies, federal partners, non-governmental agencies, and community partners.
