Volunteer With Us

Three Rivers Medical Reserve Corps

The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a national network of locally led units of medical professionals and support volunteers. The Three Rivers Health Medical Reserve Corps began in 2008. Volunteers support the health district in both emergency and non-emergency situations. The MRC collaborates with local hospitals, local county governments, the American Red Cross, and community emergency response teams (CERT) to increase capacity in emergencies. The MRC also participates in education, training, and exercises. For more information or to volunteer.

MRC units throughout the state actively improve and protect their community’s public health by supporting:

  • Health education and preventative health screenings.
  • Efforts to provide medical services to at-risk populations.
  • Communicable disease outbreak response.
  • Volunteer emergency preparedness training and exercises.
  • Local, state and national response to terrorism attacks and disasters; providing staffing support for medical services, emergency shelters, mental health outreach, dispensing sites for medications and vaccinations, disease investigations and environmental health efforts for food and human safety.
