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.
The Mission of the CTMRC is to recruit, specifically train and retain volunteers to expand the health and medical response capabilities within McLennan County. The CTMRC seeks to advance volunteerism in McLennan County by partnering and training with the Heart of Texas Council of Governments Citizens Corps, AmeriCorps and with local chapters of Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Volunteers.
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 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.
For more information on the roles and activities of our volunteers, please contact Stephanie Alvey, MRC Coordinator at email@example.com or 254-750-5492
