About Central Texas MRC

As MRC volunteers, we are committed to the health and medical well being of the citizens of McLennan County during planned preparedness events or emergency operations.

 

 

 

 

"PREPAREDNESS IS A WAY OF
LIFE NOT A SUDDEN
SPECTACULAR PROGRAM!"

 

 

 

 

 

"I SHALL BE TELLING THIS WITH A SIGH SOMEWHERE AGES AND AGES HENCE: TWO ROADS DIVERGED IN A WOOD, AND I-I TOOK THE ONE LESS TRAVELED BY, AND THAT HAS MADE ALL OF THE DIFFERENCE."

Robert Frost

The Waco-McLennan County Public Health District is the sponsoring agency for the Central Texas Medical Reserve Corps (CTMRC).

The Central Texas MRC is an all volunteer organization which encourages individual volunteers to seek and accept ownership of key portions of the MRC operations, while maintaining an integrated focus with other volunteer organizations and the response agencies within McLennan County.

The CTMRC seeks to advance volunteerism in McLennan County by partnering with the Heart of Texas Council of Governments Citizens Corps, AmeriCorps and with local chapters of Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Volunteers.

The Mission of the CTMRC remains: to recruit, specifically train and retain volunteers to expand the health and medical response capabilities within McLennan County.

The Central Texas Medical Reserve Corps is committed to build upon past successes and expand the possibilities of volunteerism in McLennan County.

Volunteers come from all walks of life, and do not have to have a background as a health care provider.  There are many roles needed during an emergency, and the CTMRC serves as the basis for meeting public health needs during all major emergency response operations in McLennan County.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, access the MRC Application link on this page, and print out the application.  The process is very simple.  Complete and mail the application to: 

Central Texas Medical Reserve Corps
225 W. Waco Drive, Waco, TX 76707
c/o Debbi Parker, MRC Coordinator

Upon receipt of your application, you will be contacted for a face-to-face interview.

CTMRC volunteers have many opportunities for training, service during emergencies, and participation during exercises.  Exercises allow emergency responders and volunteers to practice together, and improve their skills prior to an emergency.

If you would like to discuss details of the problem contact Debbi Parker, Preparedness Coordinator at debbip@ci.waco.tx.us.
