The Medical Reserve Corps is a community-based, civilian volunteer program that helps build the public health infrastructure of communities nationwide. Berkshire and Franklin units were among the very first to be founded following the events of September 11, 2001. 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.
