The Eastern Nebraska/Western Iowa Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is seeking new members to strengthen our organization!  MRC is searching for both nonmedical and medical professionals to join the team.  Volunteers work in coordination with existing local emergency response programs.  When an emergency happens, instead of wondering, "How can I help?" you will know when and where you are needed and what you're needed to do. 

In times of peace, MRC volunteers are still busy!  Volunteers participate in hands on drills and exercies.  There are many educational opportunities to engage in, many of which are free or low cost.  MRC volunteers also provide first aid services for events in the service area.  In 2018, MRC administered first aid services at neighborhood events,  run & walk events, vintage festivals, nonprofit events, a golf tournament, night markets, and so much more!  The organization also hosted a booth at serveral events throughout the year to provide emergency preparedness information to the public.

We have a wide variety of needs, and volunteers with diverse backgrounds are always appreciated!  Even if you are not medical, maybe you could help us create a website for our organization or apply for grant money to start new progams.  There is need for talents of all kinds, the sky is the limit!

Thank you for considering the MRC!
