The Mississippi Medical Reserve Corps (MMRC) is part of a national network of community-based units who contribute to local health initiatives and assist in response during public health emergencies.

Start a Local Unit
To start an MRC unit, first determine whether there is a unit in your local area by checking the Medical Reserve Corps web site.
If there is no MRC unit in your area, you can start one by contacting the MRC coordinator at the MSDH Office of Emergency Planning and Response at 601-933-6872. Volunteers need not have medical backgrounds. Units often include chaplains to assist with mental health activities; attorneys to assist with addressing issues of liability; and IT personnel to assist with database management.
