Consider this: Medical Reserve Corp


The Medical Reserve Corps of Scott County (MRC-SC) is a countywide resource of health professionals and non-medical volunteers who strengthen our community by preparing for and responding to local public health emergencies and assisting in ongoing public health initiatives. Includes option to sign up for Minnesota Responds that integrates local, regional, statewide and occasionally national during a disaster.

The MRC-SC allows for volunteers to donate their time and expertise right here in Scott County, making if easier for you to assist your own family, neighbors and community.

Our goal is to have pre-identified and trained, Medical Reserve Corps volunteers ready to assist medical response professionals during a large scale emergency that threatens local public health – be it an outbreak of meningitis, SARS, influenza or an event of bioterrorism.

From retirement to preparedness…
