The MRC Program is excited to announce 2019 National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) training opportunities for MRC participants!
The National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) has invited the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) to participate in Disaster Medical Assistance Team (DMAT) 101 trainings conducted at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) in Anniston, AL.
Attendees will gain valuable technical knowledge and have the opportunity to increase communication and collaboration with NDMS teams from across the country.
DMAT 101 training will occur in austere conditions (strenuous, outdoors during high temperatures), and all applicants must meet medical and physical requirements as stated in application.
Trainings are open to MRC state coordinators, unit leaders, and volunteers; however, space is limited. Travel expenses (that is, travel cost to/from CDP, lodging, and meals while at CDP) and travel arrangements will be handled by NDMS for all participants.
If you are interested in attending one of the trainings listed below, please review, complete, and submit the attached application to Moji Obiako, MRC Regional Liaison, via e-mail at.
The closing date for all applications is Tuesday, July 9, 2019, at 5 pm ET. We sincerely apologize for the abbreviated notice and understand some may have committed summer plans.
