Medical Reserve Corps (MRC)



What is the MRC?

The Ocean County Health Department’s Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a component of the New Jersey Citizen Corps.  The program is designed to identify and register volunteers who are willing to serve during a public health emergency.


Our program consists of both healthcare professionals (physicians, nurses, EMTs) and community volunteers with a focus on assisting at a distribution site (medicines) or medical needs shelter.  Online/in-person trainings, seminars and exercises are offered/occur throughout the year.
