The Ohio Responds Volunteer Registry is the State of Ohio’s online system for managing public health and medical disaster responder volunteers. This site supports a variety of personnel who may be utilized during disasters; all-hazard response efforts and public health activities. It is used to register, notify, and inform willing individuals who are interested in volunteering.
All CERT members who are also part of the MRC (Medical Reserve Corp) are required to sign up and maintain their records in this system. When selecting your organizations that you want to belong to, please be sure to select “Richland County MRC” As your primary organization. If selected wrong, it could delay your eligibility to be deployed with the team when needed.
If you are having any questions or problems accessing this system, please contact your CERT Program Manager ASAP.
