Volunteers Building Strong, Healthy & Prepared Communities

Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is working to improve the health and safety of communities in Wisconsin and across the country. Volunteers donate their time and expertise to prepare for and respond to emergencies and promote healthy living throughout the year. MRC organizes and utilizes 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. Overview of Medical Reserve Corps (exit DHS)

To become a Volunteer with a Wisconsin  Medical Reserve Corps Unit, contact the Wisconsin Coordinator nearest to you or of most interest to you. 

If you are interested in establishing a Medical Reserve Corps (exit DHS) in your community, contact the Wisconsin State MRC Coordinator.

For more information on the National Medical Reserve Corps, visit the Division of the Civilian Volunteer Medical Reserve Corps (exit DHS).  

Wisconsin Statute Chapter 257 (exit DHS) provides liability and worker's compensation for specified licensed health professionals deployed as volunteers during a declared emergency. To be considered for this coverage, you must join WEAVR. Wisconsin Medical Reserve Corps Units utilize WEAVR as their electronic registration system.
