Medical Reserve Corps
|To protect, promote and improve the health of our community|
Medical Reserve Corps is a national network of volunteers dedicated to ensuring hometown security. MRC units are community based and function as a way to locally organize and utilize volunteer who want to donate their time and expertise to promote healthy living throughout the year and to prepare for and respond to emergencies. MRC volunteers supplement existing local emergency and public health resources.
A public health emergency may be a widespread communicable disease outbreak or other disaster requiring quick and decisive action.
The mission of Madison County's MRC is to serve the community of Madison County by supporting public health efforts in times of community need through trained volunteers under the direction of the Madison County Health Department.
About Madison County Medical Reserve Corps:
We seek to strengthen the public health infrastructure by improving emergency preparedness through trained volunteers. MRC nurses, EMT’s and other citizens have assisted with mass vaccination clinic exercises and stand ready to assist in public health emergencies.
Who Can Volunteer:
Practicing, retired, or otherwise employed medical professionals, such as doctors, nurses, emergency medical technicians, pharmacists, nurses' assistants, and others citizens. Must be at least 18 and pass a criminal background check.
Community members without medical training can assist with administrative and other essential support functions.
