Bay Area Medical Reserve Corps
The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) was created along with Homeland Security in response to the devastating events on September 11, 2001 and the anthrax scare that shortly followed. It is the mission of the National Medical Reserve Corps to train, prepare, and mobilize teams of volunteer civilian medical professionals to respond during emergencies and disasters. Locally, the Bay Area Medical Reserve Corps does this by providing education, trainings, exercises, and mobilization events within the community.
The Bay Area Medical Reserve Corps gives medical professionals, teachers, college students, support staff and many others who are willing to volunteer, a chance to help their community. We accept a broad range of talents, skills, and abilities. A member of the Bay Area MRC is eligible to serve with any MRC program in the country at any time.
