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.
The trainings listed below are all required trainings for our Medical Reserve Corps volunteers. As additional training becomes available, they will be posted below in the Upcoming Trainings section.

The mission of the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is to engage volunteers to strengthen public health, emergency response, and community resiliency.
The Anoka County MRC volunteers have a wide variety of skill sets. Volunteers range from healthcare professionals, retirees, and non-medically trained individuals. All volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.
