Welcome to the Dane County MRC
The Wisconsin Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) in Dane County enables qualified volunteers to become trained members of strategic disaster response teams. It provides opportunities for capable individuals to help with ongoing preparedness projects, gain training, and make new friends.
Here in Dane County, our MRC program offers many varied opportunities to participate in the Dane County MRC so that each volunteer can maintain a work-life balance.
WHAT IS THE MRC?
The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a network of community-based units throughout the United States operating under the shared goal of providing organized emergency and disaster relief in a way that supports local governments.
Medical and non-medical volunteers are vetted, pre-registered, and trained to provide a wide variety of emergency response and recovery services.
The MRC was established in 2002 as an answer to the problem of “spontaneous volunteers,” which are well-intentioned helpers that end up doing harm as they misallocate resources and interrupt the vital chain of command.
The Dane County Medical Reserve Corp is Unit #529 of the national program.
