Yavapai County Community Health Services

Medical Reserve Corps logoThe Medical Reserve Corps is a national network of over 200,000 volunteers working to improve the health and safety of their communities. In response to the events of September 11, 2001, the MRC was established to help train volunteer medical professionals and community members to respond during emergencies. Since the events of 9/11, the MRC has played an important role in our county preparedness and response strategy. MRC volunteers may be called to participate in responses for mass vaccination, antibiotic dispensing, mass medical care, disease control, or providing for the health needs of vulnerable populations, including sheltering.

The Yavapai County Medical Reserve Corps was formed in 2003 to establish a team of active and retired medical professionals, non-medical laypersons, and public health professionals to help during medical or public health threats or emergencies that overwhelm current hospital resources.

In our county, volunteers have donated hundreds of hours of their time assisting with evacuations, staffing shelters, responding to COVID-19, and educating their communities. Check out our past newsletters for more examples of volunteer opportunities!

There is no minimum number of hours volunteers are required to donate! When there is an emergency or volunteer opportunity, registered volunteers will be contacted. If interested and available, volunteers are welcome to participate!
