Total Number of Volunteers

To calculate the total number of MRC volunteers, you will enter the total number of MRC members who participated in the response from your unit only into the economic impact calculator. The economic impact calculator will automatically populate the number into the report form. Only count the unit coordinator in this number if she or he serves in that role as a volunteer. We recommend using the medical professional designation only when volunteers have worked within their clinical capacity during the event.

Examples:

  1. Seventeen MRC volunteers who are Registered Nurses, plus the unit coordinator as paid staff, worked a population monitoring center following a radiation release for a total of 10 hours doing first responder well checks.
    • Total Number: 17 (do not count unit coordinator who was there as part of paid duties) volunteers in the Registered Nurse designation
  2. The MRC unit provided two volunteers (one Veterinarian and one non-medical) per shift at the animal shelter following a tornado for a total of two 7-hour shifts.
    • Total Number: 2 volunteers; 1 in the Veterinarian designation and 1 in the Non-Public Health/Non-Medical designation
  3. The MRC unit coordinator, who is a Clinical Social Worker, was requested to serve in the Local Emergency Operations Center as a local volunteer coordinator for a 12-hour shift; the shift was completed outside of his or her paid duties.
    • Total Number: 1 volunteer in the Non-Public Health/Non-Medical designation since the volunteer was not working in their clinical capacity
