What is the Medical Reserve Corps?
The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a national network of volunteers, organized at the local level to improve the health and safety of their communities.
How do MRC volunteers help in disasters?
In Martin County, the Medical Reserve Corps is coordinated by the Florida Department of Health in Martin County, where both medical and non-medical volunteers are pre-trained, prepared and ready to respond to community health emergencies in a structured way. MRC volunteers are called upon to serve alongside of public health and emergency services professionals in special needs hurricane shelters, in mass dispensing of medication/vaccination, or in disease outbreak investigations to name a few examples.
