What We Do

Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) units offer both medical and non-medical volunteers opportunities to serve people in their communities and a chance to network with other volunteers, learn new skills through training, and gain experience in emergency management and response.
The Eastern Nebraska/Western Iowa Medical Reserve Corps volunteers include medical and public health professionals, as well as other community members without healthcare backgrounds. Our MRC unit engages these volunteers to strengthen public health, improve emergency response capabilities and build community resiliency. We prepare for and respond to natural disasters, as well as other emergencies affecting public health, such as disease outbreaks. In addition, our MRC unit is very active in the community providing volunteers for non-emergency events. Annually, we provide volunteers for First Aid stations at 50-60 events.
