Lorain County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC)

What is the Lorain County MRC?

Created in March 2008, the Lorain County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a volunteer program coordinated through the Lorain County Public Health. It’s comprised of active and retired medical professionals and non-medical volunteers. MRC volunteers can aid Lorain County before, during, and after an emergency and assist with community and public health events. Opportunities exist for volunteers to assist with regional, state, and national responses, though the majority of responses and events occur in Lorain County.

What is Ohio Responds Volunteer Registry?

Ohio Responds Volunteer Registry is Ohio’s online system for managing public health and medical disaster response volunteers. It is shared by the Ohio Emergency Management Agency (EMA) and Ohio Department of Health (ODH) and used to register, notify, and inform volunteers. The Lorain County MRC Coordinator manages our local volunteers through Ohio Responds. Anyone interested in being a Lorain County MRC volunteer must register on the site.
