Medical Reserve Corps
Your local government has been working for several years to improve disaster preparedness and coordination; but there is always work to be done.
It is essential we have a functional plan ready to implement in a disaster. This is where the North Central MS Medical Reserve Corps need your help. NCM-MRC is in the process or recruiting and training volunteers.
The American College of Emergency Physicians and the National Association of EMS Physicians have published Policy on Unsolicited Medical Volunteers that states that the organized approach is needed for all medical volunteers in a disaster. They advise that medical personnel should not respond to an emergency unless officially requested by the jurisdiction’s EMS agency. The question then is: how can physicians and other medical volunteers organize and train for major disasters? Join a Medical Reserve Corp.
A Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a community-based network of volunteers who join together in a disaster to provide assistance to those affected. The MRC brings volunteers together to assist the existing local Emergency Management Service. In order to effectively assist these emergency agencies, volunteers must be trained and organized. The MRC is designed to provide an organizational structure and appropriate training.
Members of the MRC also volunteer throughout the year to promote community public health and education.
