Mobile Medical Reserve Corps

The mission of the national Medical Reserve Corps, Mobile Medical Reserve Corps and the Mobile County Health Department are all centered on protecting the health of the community.

Local Level: Each MRC unit is led by an MRC unit coordinator, who matches community needs for emergency medical response and public health initiatives with volunteer capabilities.

State Level: Each state has a MRC state coordinator who oversees the activities of the local units. Currently there are 8 MRC units throughout Alabama.

National Level:  the MRC program is run by the Office of the Civilian Volunteer Medical Reserve Corps (OCVMRC) which is headquartered in the Office of the U.S. Surgeon General, (message from the U.S. Surgeon General).  OCVMRC functions as a clearinghouse for information and best practices to help communities establish, implement, and maintain MRC units nationwide.

  • Currently over 950 units comprised of over 200,700 volunteers throughout the nation.
  • Units are divided into 10 regions under the direction of MRC regional coordinators
