Does your community have a Medical Reserve Corps? Maybe it should

According to recent news reports, "The World Health Organization warned countries around the world Saturday to be on alert for any unusual flu outbreaks after a unique new swine flu virus was implicated in possibly dozens of human deaths in North America."

The local news headlines say "New U.S. Swine Flu Cases Spread "Pandemic" Fear Virus confirmed in Kansas and probable in New York City".

Now while this article should not cause major panic, it is always good to take basic health precautions and consider volunteering for a local Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) program, in the event a local response was needed for a pandemic flu.
