Medical Reserve Corps (MRC)

The Medical Reserve Corps is a volunteer organization that utilizes the skills and abilities of all individuals. The Anoka County Public Health and Environmental Services Department is always in need of volunteers to serve when there are events that impact the health, safety, and wellness of our communities. Volunteers are needed to perform many different roles during an emergency, some of which a professional license is required, but many jobs involve no specific healthcare training.
