- a project of the Capitol Region Emergency Planning Committee -


Following September 11, 2001, health professionals asked “What can I do to help? “ In Connecticut and across the country, the Medical Reserve Corps provided an opportunity for volunteer service to their local communities.

MRC units are comprised of local, citizen volunteers who are trained to respond to health and medical situations in support of established, local public health and emergency medical response systems. Volunteers from a variety of health professions such as doctors, nurses, EMTs, pharmacists, mental health practitioners, dentists, physicians assistants, health technicians, support personnel and more are members of the Corps.  They may be retired, part-time or full-time workers. Volunteer responsibilities include emergency medical care and triage, logistic or backup support for trauma units and hospitals in the event of a disaster, immunization campaigns, and public health awareness efforts.  The Capitol Region MRC consists of practicing and retired health care professionals and other volunteers trained to assist with health emergencies. 

If you have medical skills and training, and are interested in learning more about the Capitol Region and its volunteer response, click on the links to your left.

To join, follow this link to the application form, and we will contact you about orientation and training. You can also contact the CR-MRC Director, Katherine McCormack at 860-214-2178 or, or the CR-MRC Medical Director, Dr. Ron Buckman at 860-646-0649.
