The mission of the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is to improve the health and safety of communities across the country by organizing and utilizing public health, medical and other volunteers.
MRC units are community-based and function as a way to locally organize and utilize volunteers who want to donate their time and expertise to prepare for and respond to emergencies and promote healthy living throughout the year. MRC volunteers supplement existing emergency and public health resources. Volunteers often include medical and public health professionals such as physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, veterinarians, and epidemiologists. Many community members—interpreters, chaplains, office workers, legal advisors, and others—can fill key support positions.
If you have a desire to serve your community during an emergency, join Champaign County’s MRC unit today! Please fill out this form and bring it to the health district along with your driver's license or state issued identification card; additionally bring in any other certifications that you may have, such as a CPR or First Aid card.
