Mission Statement

The goal of the Massachusetts Metro East Medical Reserve Corps is to provide a team of trained, credentialed volunteers that can be activated to support the response to a public health emergency in the Greater Boston area.

Description

The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a national network of volunteers focused on emergency preparedness.

The Metro East MRC Unit, which is hosted by the Arlington Health Department, covers 18 of the 27 communities within Massachusetts Emergency Preparedness Region 4B: Arlington, Belmont, Braintree, Cambridge, Chelsea, Cohasset, Everett, Hanover, Hingham, Hull, Norwell, Quincy, Revere, Scituate, Somerville, Watertown, Weymouth, and Winthrop. At the same time, the Metro East MRC Unit also functions as an umbrella organization serving the whole region. It was established to develop a regional volunteer corps, to support MRC activities in the 27 communities within Region 4B, and to organize collaboration among the region’s four federally recognized MRC Units: Brookline MRC, Newton MRC, Norfolk County 8 MRC, and Metro East MRC.
