Manatee County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC)
The Medical Reserve Corps is a team of pre-identified, trained, and credentialed volunteers who augment local community health and medical services during disasters and other public health activities. These volunteers include physicians, nurses, dentists, veterinarians, pharmacists, other health and medical professionals, as well as others who are willing to support the MRC and Manatee County.
When the health and medical capability of Manatee County is stretched during disasters and other health emergencies, the MRC is here to assist!
On October 6-7, 2016, the Manatee County Medical Reserve Corps assisted the Florida Department of Health in Manatee County set up and staff a special needs shelter for those seeking refuge from Hurricane Matthew. Six members contributed over 70 hours for this event! Great job everyone!!
The Manatee County Medical Reserve Corps provided medical stand-by for the Centerstone 5K on Saturday, September 24, 2016 in Palmetto, FL. We staffed two medical aid stations, utilized our mini emergency response vehicle (MERV), and had a medical team on foot walking around Sutton Park after the race.
