The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a national network of volunteers, organized locally to improve the health and safety of their communities. The MRC network comprises over 850 community-based units and over 180,000 volunteers located throughout the United States and its territories.

MRC volunteers donate their time and expertise to:

  • Prepare for and respond to emergencies
  • Promote healthy living throughout the year
  • Participate in initiatives that enhance public health such as vaccination and health education programs
  • Supplement existing emergency and public health resources

MRC volunteers include medical & non-medical personnel such as physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, veterinarians, epidemiologists along with many other community members, such as interpreters, social workers, chaplains, teachers, office workers, legal advisors, EMS, law enforcement and many others who can fill key support positions. We can use anyone!

Why Volunteer?
You never know when your community might need you.
The success of our response to a large-scale public health event, such as a pandemic or bioterrorism attack, depends on how quickly and effectively we can mobilize MRC volunteers.
