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).
Our 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. Our volunteers find great satisfaction in knowing they are making their community safer and healthier for everyone. Other benefits include:
- Free training and CEUs that have included CPR/First Aid, Psychological First Aid, Sheltering, and Emergency Preparedness.
- An opportunity to network with others who share your interests.
- Regular meetings that include social activities and valuable information.
- Valuable experience that can be noted in your resume.
