Team could be deployed in an emergency

CANNON BEACH — Two years ago, a budding medical reserve corps in Cannon Beach started with four orange tubs filled with basic medical supplies and a couple of passionate volunteers.

Now, a few grants and a significant number of donations later, the volunteer emergency preparedness group has amassed more than 4,200 individual medical items that can be distributed in an emergency.

The group of 23 local volunteer surgeons, nurses, counselors and other health care specialists is the only one of its kind in Clatsop County, and only one of four on the Oregon Coast. It has been slowly growing and training to be a team that can be deployed to address medical needs in an emergency.

The concept of a medical reserve corps is nothing new. The corps, a national network of volunteers charged with improving the health and safety of their communities, has existed for decades. More than 900 groups are registered throughout the United States. There is also a statewide registry of health care professionals who can be deployed in an emergency.
