The Medical Reserve Corps.

The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a national network of volunteers who work should-to-shoulder with Public Health staff and help build community resilience during disasters. The MRC network comprises more than 300,000 volunteers in roughly 800 community-based units located throughout the United States and its territories. MRC units organize and utilize local volunteers who want to donate their time and expertise to prepare for and respond to emergencies and to support ongoing preparedness initiatives. MRC volunteers include medical and public health professionals as well as other community members without healthcare backgrounds who want to improve the health and safety of their communities.
