A Message from Maine Responds:
We appreciate all of the offers coming in to assist in Maine CDC's COVID-19 response. By registering with Maine Responds at maineresponds.org, you will join our listing of volunteers against which we search for any emergent volunteer workforce needs. Read on for the details of joining both Maine Responds, and our more involved volunteer opportunities through Maine Medical Reserve Corps - members of both start with the same first step: register at maineresponds.org.
The Maine Responds Emergency Health Volunteer System is the online registration system for public health, healthcare and emergency response volunteers for the State of Maine.
Maine Responds is a partnership that integrates local, regional, and statewide volunteer resources to assist our public health and healthcare systems. It is part of a national initiative to train, coordinate, and mobilize volunteers during an emergency. Maine Responds coordinates verified, pre-credentialed public health, healthcare and emergency response volunteers into a single database that can coordinate the need for volunteers across county, regional and state lines if needed.
Maine Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) volunteer programs reinforce our state's public health infrastructure and support low stress/no-fault exercise environments that test critical response capabilities. Members of both Maine Responds and MRC start with the same first step: register at maineresponds.org. You will be able to select your local MRC unit in the drop-down menu under the "Organizations" section of the registration - refer to this link to determine your Public Health District(s). Maine Responds ESAR-VHP is our volunteer communication and activation system.
