Mission

MRC GEM is a part of the USA Freedom Corps/Citizen Corps, created by the President in response to the attacks of September 11, 2001. The MRC program is guided by the HHS Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR). We help our health departments meet the needs of our communities when they exceed existing capacity and work with local emergency management to provide support as requested.

Our mission is to augment existing community health operations during large-scale emergencies, aid in response to pressing health care needs, and improve community emergency preparedness.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

emergency preparedness and response

We recruit volunteers with both medical and non-medical backgrounds, training them in the skills needed during health emergencies. The local health departments of the three counties we serve have a combined staff of under 500 people serving a population totalling close to one million. Many more people would be needed to augment existing staff during an event affecting even a small percentage of the population. MRC GEM's purpose is to provide the personnel to fill this gap.
