Burlington Volunteer Reserve Corps (MRC)

Next BVRC Quarterly Meeting - 1/20/16

The Burlington Volunteer Reserve Corps (MRC) was established in 2006. The Mission of the Burlington Volunteer Reserve Corps (MRC) is to assist and support the Board of Health in public health initiatives and in declared and undeclared public health emergencies.

The Burlington Volunteer Reserve Corps (MRC) was formed to promote public health and safety in the Town of Burlington in the following areas:

  1. Public health emergencies (events that threaten public health such as disease outbreak or toxic chemical release)
  2. Mass casualty incidents (disasters that cause injury or threats to large numbers of people, such as an event that causes displacement of large numbers of people)
  3. Community service activities (opportunities that foster the well-being of the residents of Burlington such as assisting at health fairs and providing training programs for personal safety in the event of a mass casualty or disease outbreak)

All volunteers are welcome, no matter what your background. Every volunteer is needed and will have an important job.
