NEMO Medical Reserve Corps

An emergency response team is looking for new volunteers.
The Northeast Missouri Medical Reserve Corps was established in 2002 after 9/11.
Its goal is to strengthen public health and emergency disaster response through education and preparedness.
If you're interested, here's how you can take part.
"We meet monthly at the Adair County Health Department. We're always looking for new volunteers. We have lots of programs to offer and training. If you want to serve your community and volunteer, it's a great opportunity to do that," said Coordinator Ron Stewart.
Stewart said the NEMO Medical Reserve Corps' biggest test was the response in 2009 to the Kirksville tornado.
The group also helps out during the annual drive-through flu clinic.
