Pierce County Medical Reserve Corps

Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a national network of volunteers locally organized to improve our communities’ health and safety.

MRC has 747 local units and more than 200,000 volunteers throughout the United States and its territories. MRC volunteers are medical and public health professionals and other community members without healthcare backgrounds.

Pierce County MRC volunteers strengthen public health, improve emergency response and build community resiliency.

Volunteers help prepare for and respond to natural disasters—like wildfires, floods, blizzards, hurricanes and tornados—and other emergencies that affect public health, like disease outbreaks. Volunteers often contribute to community activities that promote healthy habits.

Emergencies and disasters will happen.

Here in the Pacific Northwest, we can expect winter storms, earthquakes, infectious diseases or even an eruption of Mt. Rainier. We help our communities prepare for and respond to events we can predict and those we cannot.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of Pierce County MRC.

Our team of medical professionals, community organizations and volunteers work together to make a difference in Pierce County communities. You can join our team and share our mission.

You can also join our Trauma Resilience Team, which focuses on mental health and trauma.
