a decision has been made to activate the Tooele County Medical
Reserve Corps, (MRC) other management actions will be implemented
in a three way process. The activation
may be declared by the governor, a county executive, or Myron E.
Bateman, Director of Health. It may be a partial or full activation.
The three way process is:
1. Activation/Notification (Utah
Information and Notification System - UNIS)
1. Notification (Phase
I): Following a large mass casualty incident, natural or man-made
disaster, or a mass disease outbreak/epidemic, the Tooele County
Department Operations Center will activate; and the Emergency Operation
Center (EOC) may activate. The Tooele County Health Department
(TCHD ), as the lead agency for Health, will coordinate all public
health needs in the community. When the current disaster/epidemic
response infrastructure, including hospital response, becomes overwhelmed,
the Health Officer will direct the MRC coordinator
to activate the Tooele County Medical Reserve Corps to assist in
the response activities already in place.Team leaders (Physician,
Nurse, Emergency, and Logistics) will be notified simultaneously.
Team members will also be notified. Registered
MRC members (not assigned to a Physician Team) with ID badges will
have immediate access to the volunteer staging
area and receive a situation briefing, training and
a specific duty assignment. Before deploying, proper personal protective
equipment (PPE) and communication equipment will be distributed.
