HELP US BE READY
WHEN DISASTER STRIKES!
The mission of the Medical Reserve Corps is
to allow local volunteer medical and health professionals to contribute their
skills and expertise throughout the year as well as during times of community need.
The Medical Reserve Corps is a community-based, civilian volunteer program that helps build the public health infrastructure of communities nationwide. Each MRC unit is organized and trained to address a wide range of challenges from public health education to disaster response. Here is a 7 minute video explaining the MRC. watch the video
