The Hunterdon County Medical Reserve Corps is one of 24 MRC units in New Jersey — and one of 997 across America — formed to respond to local community needs during wide-scale public health emergencies. Nearly 208,000 volunteers serve in MRC units in all 50 states — plus Washington DC, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Who we serve
The Hunterdon County MRC is a ready-to-go unit that can be dispatched quickly to public health emergencies anywhere in the county, providing service to a population of 130,000 residents. Our unit includes health professionals, either practicing or retired, as well as non-medical volunteers. The host agency for MRC is the Hunterdon County Division of Public Safety.
You're "MRC Material" if:
- You desire to make a difference in your community
- You want to be in the action during times of crisis and to help with occasional local health events
- You would like training and hands-on experience during actual emergencies
There is never a better time than “right now” to put your skill and compassion to work. Join us.
Note to practicing Health Professionals
If in addition to serving Hunterdon County, you would be willing to help in a federal emergency, perhaps in another state, please consider registering with ESAR-VHP, the Emergency System for Advance Registration of Volunteer Health Professionals. See the “What is ESAR-VHP” page for information.
