The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a network in the U.S. of community-based units initiated and established by local organizations to meet public health needs of their communities.  The Burlington Volunteer Reserve Corps (MRC) was established by the Burlington Board of Health in 2006 and is a federally recognized unit under the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR).

BVRC volunteers support the Burlington Board of Health in providing public health services and programs, such as the annual flu clinic, the Community Health Fair, the semi-annual household hazardous waste collections, and blood pressure screenings throughout the community.  BVRC volunteers participate in a variety of training opportunities to be able to assist the Town of Burlington, if needed, in emergency response efforts, such as disease outbreaks or sheltering. 

BVRC volunteers are your neighbors and co-workers who are practicing or retired physicians, nurses, social workers, accountants, interpreters, clergy, dentists, administrators, and anyone else who wants to share their skills.  They find great satisfaction in knowing they are making their community safer and healthier for everyone.
