Mission Statement

The South Carolina Public Health Reserve Corps (PHRC) program provides an opportunity for medical, behavioral health and non-medical volunteers to assist communities during disasters and non-emergency public health activities.

Description

MRC volunteers include medical and public health professionals, as well as other community members without healthcare backgrounds. MRC units engage these volunteers to strengthen public health, improve emergency response capabilities, and build community resiliency. They prepare for and respond to natural disasters, such as wildfires, hurricanes, tornados, blizzards, and floods, as well as other emergencies affecting public health, such as disease outbreaks. They frequently contribute to community health activities that promote healthy habits. Examples of activities that MRC volunteers participate in and support include:

  • Emergency Preparedness and Response Trainings


  • Emergency Sheltering
  • Vaccination Clinics


  • Health Education and Promotion
