• The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) volunteers are critical to emergency response efforts. Having a reliable and vetted pool of MRC volunteers who can be called upon is one way Northern Nevada Public Health (NNPH) is able to support our community. In the event of an incident, time and resources are simply not available to process, train and manage spontaneous volunteers. NNPH prepares in advance by registering and screening members, verifying medical licenses to ensure a rapid, coordinated response. Spontaneous volunteers often present a hindrance to incident management and may be turned away. If you want to be part of disaster response effort, become a member of the MRC now so you can be deployed quickly when an emergency occurs.
  • Helping the community in a time of need is not only fulfilling for the volunteer, but the MRC Program also comes with extras. Training programs are offered (examples include CPR and Stop the Bleed) as well as opportunities to participate in emergency response exercises. MRC are provided the opportunity to increase their knowledge, develop their skills, and connect with a diverse group of people who are dedicated to public health.
