About the Winnebago County MRC
Dear Community Member:
The USA Freedom Corps & Medical Reserve Corps were created to help establish a culture of service, citizenship and responsibility in our nation, allowing residents to fulfill our country’s call to individual volunteerism while significantly aiding our local communities in the time of a health disaster. The MRC program places emphasis on the importance of both a family disaster plan for the home and a community disaster plan to relieve the local emergency response agencies when the need is overwhelming.
In order to support the medical volunteers, we also actively recruit people with any other skill, such as inventory specialists, educators, people with organizational skills, etc. Together we will have a full force prepared to respond when called. On this webpage you will find a MRC application and MRC program Overview Letter, Emergency Preparedness Newsletter, Links Training Opportunities and more. If you have questions or suggest any specific agencies or individuals that you feel we should contact, please contact the Medical Reserve Corps Coordinator, Karla Chester at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our fax number is (815) 720-4001.
