Composed of administrative and healthcare professionals, the Central Florida MRC provides support for emergency medical workers of various disaster response agencies. Members of the MRC undergo training to prepare them to assist in emergency situations.
Anyone living or working within the counties of Brevard, Orange, and Osceola may volunteer for the Central Florida MRC unit, regardless of medical experience. Although the unit needs trained professionals and disease specialists, it also receives support from non-medical volunteers such as amateur radio operators, chaplains, and interpreters.
Benefits of volunteering with the MRC range from the opportunity to receive free disaster response training to networking with peers. Serving your local community can also provide you with a sense of pride and satisfaction in being able to give back.
