Medical Reserve Corps
Everyone can do something……. the USA Freedom Corps was created to foster a culture of service, citizenship and responsibility.  He asked all Americans to make a lifetime commitment of at least 2 years (4000 hours) to serving their neighbors and their nation.  The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is one way to fulfill this opportunity to help.

The Medical Reserve Corps is the component of the Citizen Corps that brings together local health professionals and others with relevant health related skills to volunteer in their community.

Non medical volunteers are needed to support the disaster effort.
These volunteers will assist the local, existing community emergency medical response system, as well as provide a group of readily trained and available resources to help the community deal with pressing public health needs and improvements.

The MRC’s purpose is to augment medical and support staff shortages dealing with situations that have significant public health consequences. Non health care providers will assist with transportation of supplies, victim assistance and record keeping.
The website includes information about the RSVP program, and how to help in times of disaster
