Anyone can volunteer.
Whatever your experience or training, your community needs you. In Texas, there are 28 Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) units and more than 9,900 volunteers. Because each community has different needs, the MRC units throughout Texas vary in structure and activities.
MRC volunteers can choose to support communities in need nationwide. When the southeast was battered by hurricanes in 2004, MRC volunteers in the affected areas and beyond helped communities by filling in at local hospitals, assisting their neighbors at local shelters, and providing first aid to those injured by the storms. During this 2-month period, more than 30 MRC units worked as part of the relief efforts, including those whose volunteers were called in from across the country to assist the American Red Cross (ARC) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
