Volunteers Building Strong, Healthy, and Prepared Communities

KMRC volunteer

In any disastrous event, local healthcare resources may be overwhelmed and additional medical, non-medical and mental health volunteers will be needed.

KMRC volunteers can play a crucial role in making this happen by being part of a pre-identified, pre-credentialed and pre-trained team of potential responders.

KMRC is a unit of the national Medical Reserve Corps (MRC).  KMRC is sponsored by the Kern County Department of Public Health.  In an official local disaster or emergency, KMRC volunteers will be activated under the Kern County Emergency Operations Plan.

Benefits of KMRC membership:
  • Be part of a volunteer team that can be called to service efficiently to help our communities recover as quickly as possible

  • Reduce injuries, save lives

  • Be trained in disaster response
