Emergency Services Outreach Awarded Contract to Hold MRC Conference 2017
November 14th, 2016
Albuquerque, New Mexico
New Mexico’s Emergency Services Outreach, Inc. has been selected to provide logistics for the 2017 Medical Reserve Corps Volunteer Summit. In collaboration with the New Mexico Department of Health’s Bureau of Health Emergency Management (BHEM), Emergency Services Outreach (ESO) will organize, coordinate and host the conference February 24th– 26th, 2017 in Albuquerque. The summit is an annual opportunity for Medical Reserve Corps volunteers from across the state to gain continuing education, network, and practice disaster response deployment drills. The MRC Summit will close with a day-long disaster drill where members and stakeholders work together to deploy resources and treat mock-victims of a disaster.
“This summit is one of the most important conference projects we have been lucky enough to be involved in,” said Sean Haaverson, ESO’s President, Co-Founder and Paramedic. “This may be the only opportunity that some volunteers may have to get essential updates and to become familiar with emergency equipment for the year. Since they are a volunteer corps, they are busy professionals in many industries and this is a free conference for them.”
As has been coordinated in the past, the MRC Summit will coincide with middle, high school and college students attending their Health Occupations Student Association (HOSA) Future Health Professionals state competitions. HOSA participants will compete in medical skills, leadership and problem solving. Through the collaboration, the HOSA students can take classes at the MRC Summit and network with professionals in the careers they are training to enter.
