Emergency Preparedness


Medical Reserve Corps

  • The Livingston County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) consists of locally based professional medical and non-medical volunteers.
  • The volunteers  assist their communities during emergencies, such as an influenza epidemic, a chemical spill, or an act of terrorism. 
  • MRC volunteers may also assist medical staff shortages at local medical and emergency facilities.  
  • All volunteers are provided training on emergency preparedness and response.


  • The MRC is continually recruiting volunteers. 
  • Community members with and  without medical training are encouraged to volunteer. 
  • There are some health and training requirements in order to become a volunteer.  Here is a list of the requirements.  Some of these may be waived temporarily during an emergency.
  • Are you ready to lend a hand to your community as an MRC volunteer?  The registration process can be found here    .
  • If you have any questions about the MRC program, please call the Livingston County Department of Health: 585-243-7299
