Massachusetts Medical Society: MA Responds

MA Responds

ma_responds.jpg MA Responds is a centralized volunteer management system designed to enhance Massachusetts’ ability to prepare for and respond to health related emergencies and events. All levels of volunteers, clinical or non-clinical, active or retired, are needed.

Volunteers are encouraged to affiliate with a local MRC unit, but an individual may also sign up as a state unaffiliated volunteer. Signing up does not commit a volunteer to respond, but creates another potential resource that can be called upon during a time of need.

MA Responds integrates volunteer programs, including state unaffiliated volunteers (formerly MSAR), the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health Behavioral Health Disaster Responders, and participating Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) units.

MA Responds helps to ensure that volunteer professionals can be quickly identified and credentialed, so that they can be properly utilized in response to a public health emergency or event. MA Responds is coordinated administratively by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
