Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a component of the New Jersey Citizen Corps. The program is designed to identify and register volunteers who are willing to serve during a public health emergency.
Our program consists of both healthcare professionals (physicians, nurses, EMTs) and community volunteers with a focus on assisting at a point of distribution (POD) site or Medical Needs Shelter. Online and in-person trainings and exercises are offered/occur throughout the year.
Your organization could sign up to become a Closed POD to receive medication for employees and family members in the event of a public health emergency. Contact Alyssa Berdnik to enroll and learn why this could be beneficial for you and your staff.
