Bucks County Medical Reserve Corps

Who we are and what we do 

The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a national network of medical and non-medical volunteers, organized locally to improve the health and safety of their communities. The MRC network includes more than 200,000 volunteers across the United States and its territories.  For more information about the MRC, you can visit the  national MRC website at https://mrc.hhs.gov/HomePage

The Bucks County Medical Reserve Corps (BC-MRC) was formed in 2005. Today, the organization has grown to include more than 250 volunteers. The Bucks County Department of Health and the Bucks County Emergency Management Agency sponsor our unit, which is active both during emergencies and throughout the year. Our volunteers participate in public health preparedness trainings, exercises, and community events both in Bucks County and in the Southeastern Pennsylvania region. BC-MRC volunteers have been deployed in response to local and national emergencies. Our unit has also participated in community vaccination clinics and preparedness drills and exercises, staffed emergency shelters, and provided education at community events and expos.
