Medical Reserve Corps


The Maplewood Health Department is recruiting volunteers with medical credentials and non-medical volunteers to assist the Township during times of emergency. The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) has been established to maintain a list of trained people that may be called when staff is not sufficient to meet the needs of the community.  What is the Medical Reserve Corps?  New Jersey has created the New Jersey Medical Reserve Corps (NJMRC) under the auspices of the New Jersey Citizen Corps. This program is designed to help identify and register individuals who are willing to serve within their local area. Volunteers will be utilized through county and local health agencies as part of the emergency management system in that jurisdiction.   The mission of the Medical Reserve Corps is to develop a prepared, trained workforce of volunteers to serve the citizens of New Jersey in the event of a public health emergency.

File of Life

The File of Life Program is a national program that is recognized by all first responders in the event of an emergency house call or accident. The File of Life allows a person to document their current medications, medical and health conditions, and persons to contact in the event of an emergency. When the File of Life is maintained and updated annually, it can reduce the need to continually ask the patient and family for medical information during an emergency. The free File of Life Program provides you with a kit which has 2 red plastic envelopes that contain your important medical information. One is magnetized for your refrigerator, one is wallet size. For more information click the link below. This is a FREE program provided to Maplewood residents.
