The Putnam County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) recruits and trains volunteers to support the county in the event of a disaster, whether from natural causes or terrorism. Our goal is to serve our community with a group of well-trained Emergency Response team volunteers.

Putnam County MRC needs all volunteers! Volunteers can include physicians, nurses, paramedics, EMT’s, mental heath professionals and community members with expertise in many different areas. Anyone, even retired community residents, with a commitment to the residents of Putnam County are welcomed by the MRC.

About the Medical Reserve Corps

We know that disasters can strike close to home and without any notice. We must therefore be prepared to respond immediately and effectively, and this requires an adequate workforce. In a large-scale event, no community would be adequately prepared in terms of person power. That is why we are pleased to announce the creation of the Putnam County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC), established alongside hundreds of MRC’s across the country.

The mission of the MRC is to engage volunteers to strengthen public health, emergency response and community resiliency. MRC units are community-based and function as a way to locally organize and utilize volunteers who want to donate their time and expertise to prepare for and respond to emergencies and promote healthy living throughout the year.
