Due to the Current CDC and City of El Paso guidelines the April MRC meeting has been cancelled. Everyone stay SAFE!

Major emergencies or disasters can at times overwhelm first responders and the healthcare infrastructure. These can include both man-made and natural disasters such as disease outbreaks, floods, and terrorism. Medical and non-medical volunteers can provide an important "surge capacity" during such events. The MRC Volunteer can be called upon to fulfill such functions as triage, patient education, medical evaluation, vaccination, or distribution of medication and supplies. They can also augment medical staff shortages at local medical and emergency facilities, including medical special needs shelters and alternate care sites. In times when there are no emergencies or disasters, the MRC volunteers support the goals of the United States Department of Health and Human Services while advancing the priorities of the Surgeon General. They also support locally defined initiatives such as injury prevention, public education on emergency preparedness and participation in regional exercises and drills.
