What is the MRC?

The MRC is a group of locally organized healthcare and non-healthcare volunteers working to strengthen the health and safety of the community.  The goal of the Medical Reserve Corps is to identify, credential, train and prepare volunteers BEFORE a natural disaster or a national incident.
​The MRC believes that prepared communities lead to prepared states, which create a prepared nation. 


“To engage health care professionals and other volunteers in helping the community prepare for, respond to, and mitigate emergencies, disasters, and pressing public health needs.”
