The State of Tennessee Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) Volunteer Program serves the Tennessee Department of Health (TDH) by strengthening public health, emergency preparedness and response, and community resiliency.
The TDH Emergency Preparedness (EP) program is the statewide point-of-contact supporting the Regional Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) and Emergency Volunteer Programs.
Major emergencies and disasters involving disease or injury to large numbers of people can overwhelm full-time emergency response, hospital, and other health care personnel within the first 12 to 72 hours. Volunteers can provide an important "surge" capacity during these critical early hours supplementing medical and health personnel shortages, or function as support personnel.
The MRC helps fill gaps in services with volunteers who've been organized, trained, and assigned to assist where their expertise is best applied.
