After September 11, 2001, thousands of Americans responded by volunteering to help in any way they could. Many more Americans asked, "What can I do to help?" The Medical Reserve Corps brings volunteers - health professionals and others - together to supplement existing local emergency plans and resources in cities, towns, and counties throughout the United States. In order to be most effective during times of emergency, volunteers must be organized and trained to work in emergency situations. The Medical Reserve Corps is designed to provide that organizational structure and promote appropriate training of volunteers for communities.
