The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a national program organized locally to coordinate volunteers in the event of a disaster, but we also build community resiliency in times of peace through public health education and offering trainings. Anyone is free to join, medical and non-medical, as long as he/she is 18 years or older and does not have a criminal history. We are health educators, nurses, doctors, students, retirees, teachers, social workers, technicians, government employees, office clerks, retail employees, and more!
When there is an emergency, we only respond when activated by the state or the local emergency management office, and volunteer roles can vary depending upon your background. Your time and involvement is always completely voluntary, even in the case of an emergency.
To become a volunteer, you will need to fill register for SERV-IN. The State Registry of Emergency Volunteer of Indiana is how we will contact you for an emergency, which you are then given the option to respond or not to respond. We also use SERV-IN to access volunteer contact information, deployment preferences, any completed trainings or licenses, and more.
