Burlington Volunteer Reserve Corps (MRC)

The Burlington Volunteer Reserve Corps (MRC) is a group of volunteers who support their community in essential public health services, such as flu clinics and educational programs, and are ready to assist the Town of Burlington, if needed, in community-wide emergency response efforts, such as disease outbreaks or sheltering during severe weather events. 

The Burlington Volunteer Reserve Corps (MRC) program is sponsored by the Burlington Board of Health.  The National MRC Program is housed within the Office of Emergency Management (OEM), Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
