The Salt Lake County Medical Reserve Corps (SLCoMRC) improves public health and safety by ensuring that a trained group of volunteer health professionals is ready to respond to health emergencies. We augment the efforts of medical staff at local hospitals and emergency centers by providing a pre-organized and rapid response to medical surge emergencies.
We coordinate our efforts within the health department, professional organizations, local governments and hospitals, as well as statewide and national emergency response teams to ensure that our response is as timely and effective as possible.
Some of the activities we
participate in include staffing first-aid stations for community events such as
the Salt Lake City Marathon, educating the community in disaster preparedness,
Stop the Bleed, and training in multiple facets of health.
Our members include a range of medical and nonmedical volunteers, from nurses to HAM radio operators, who all
work together to ensure a safer and healthier community through service.

MRC is always seeking volunteers to help protect our community. We hold regular trainings and drills, and assist with medical help at community events. While we welcome anyone interested in serving, we are most in need of licensed:
