Eastern Idaho Medical Reserve Corps

The Eastern Idaho Medical Reserve Corps allows local medical and non-medical volunteers to contribute their skills and expertise during times of community need. An organized, well trained Medical Reserve Corps unit means that volunteers can effectively respond to an emergency, are familiar with their community’s response plan, know what materials are available for their use, know who their partners in the response are, and know where their skills can be utilized to their best advantage and in a coordinated manner.

Want to join?

It is easy to register to become an Eastern Idaho Medical Reserve Corps member, through the Volunteer Idaho system. Even if you do not have a professional license, you can still play an important role in the MRC.
