Welcome to the Home Page of the Western Mass Medical Reserve Corps. 

The Medical Reserve Corps is a community-based, civilian volunteer program that helps build the public health infrastructure of communities nationwide. Each MRC unit is organized and trained to address a wide range of challenges from public health education to disaster response.  Please consider this website a resource for keeping yourself, your families (including your pets), your businesses and your communities safe.  Volunteers are always needed and there are service opportunities for everyone.

The Western MA Medical Reserve Corps (WMMRC) is a coalition of 11 Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) units serving Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden and Hampshire counties and their 101 cities and towns. Click on your county above to access Unit specific pages and information.

WMMRC exists to improve the health and safety of our communities and our region.   Units are made up of medical and non-medical volunteers who are trained to respond to public health emergencies and disasters when activated by a local community or hospital. Members also participate in and conduct education and outreach events throughout the year that promote our mission of community health, emergency preparedness, and resiliency. We collaborate with other organizations within Citizen Corps including CERT (Community Emergency Response Teams) and DART (Disaster Animal Response Teams) as well as organizations outside of Citizen Corps (i.e. American Red Cross (ARC), community, faith-based and businesses) to ensure the most effective response capabilities for our region.
