Preparing for the worst, the Medical Reserve Corps needs volunteers who could mean the difference between life and death in time of disaster.“We don’t have enough help should an emergency happen involving the entire district,” said Dawn Hickey of the Medical Reserve Corps which is actively seeking medical and non-medical volunteers. “In Warren County we have 120, but we need 300.”The Medical Reserve Corps was set up in 2002 shortly after the 911 attacks. Its first priority was to be ready should smallpox be used as an agent by terrorists to attack the United States population.
