Medical Reserve Corps
BCHD’s Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a volunteer group of medical and mental health professionals who support first responders following a disaster. MRC also provides on-going health and emergency preparedness education, and partners with local agencies—like the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) and neighborhood watch programs—in drills and exercises with South Bay fire and police departments.
