Upper Merrimack Valley Medical Reserve Corps

The Upper Merrimack Valley MRC is one of about 45 Medical Reserve Corps units in Massachusetts – and one of nearly 1000 across America – that is actively recruiting, training, and deploying civilian volunteers in case of emergencies. We are always eager to welcome new members who would like to make a difference in their community, both in responding to a crisis and supporting local community health programs. Although this is a regional unit which serves the seven communities across the Upper Merrimack Valley, applicants can choose whether to serve in their town only, the UMV region, across Massachusetts upon urgent request, or on a National MRC deployment.
