Virginia Beach Medical Reserve Corps

(13)

The Virginia Beach Medical Reserve Corps (VBMRC) is a component of the Virginia Beach Citizens Corps Council (VBCCC). The VBMRC provides healthcare professionals and others with an organized mechanism through which they can volunteer their time and skills in order to strengthen the City of Virginia Beach by preparing for and responding to large and small scale emergencies, such as an influenza pandemic, chemical spill, or act of terrorism. In addition, the volunteers work to improve the overall health and well being of Virginia Beach by engaging in public health initiatives throughout the year.

Mission: The purpose of the MRC program is to strengthen the community by establishing a local team of trained medical, public health, and other community volunteers. After September 11, thousands of Americans responded by volunteering to help in any way they could. Many more asked, "What can I do to help?" The MRC brings volunteers together to supplement existing local emergency plans and resources in cities, towns, and counties throughout the United States.
