Ohio Residents: Limited Liability Protection
Ohio law provides liability protection to registered and trained Ohio Medical Reserve Corps volunteers during local, state or federally declared emergencies, disasters, drills/exercises, and trainings. The Ohio Department of Health and Ohio Emergency Management Association jointly share responsibilities of the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) applicable to liability protection for MRC volunteers. The statute also protects a registered volunteer's personal information on the Ohio Responds Database from public disclosure. Review the Ohio Responds Limited Liability Protection document describing the Ohio law.
