Medical Reserve Corps
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.

For Current Volunteers
Below you will find information regarding dates of events and, more importantly, all the training resources you need for onboarding.
Recently, Salt Lake County Medical Reserve Corps has adopted NAACHO MRC Deployment guidelines, which recommend all volunteers receive consistent training during onboarding, while also organizing volunteers into different tier levels: Tier 1 for beginning, Tier 2 for intermediate, and Tier 3 for advanced. Each tier is associated with a different eligibility for deployment and as you advance among the tiers, you receive additional training. Tier 1 volunteers are eligible for local deployment; Tier 2 volunteers are eligible for regional deployment; and Tier 3 volunteers are eligible for national deployment.
To complete onboarding, start with the Core Trainings section; ALL volunteers should be familiar with these trainings.
After Core Trainings, complete the position-specific training for your specialty: testing, vaccination, or community aid.
While only Tier 1 training is currently available, we plan to integrate all tiers and additional trainings within this system in the next year.
Thank you for participating!
