Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
— Margaret Mead
During emergency events, large numbers of professionals and citizens with many different skills show up to help, but many of them are turned away because they are not credentialed and/or they may not have the safety and emergency skills needed. The Medical Reserve Corps program is designed to provide prescreening of all volunteers and to provide emergency response training so that help to the residents of a community is not delayed.
The Wachusett Medical Reserve Corps (WMRC) is a volunteer group registered with the federal government and is part of a large network of units across the United States. Approved on March 11, 2006 and based in Hubbardston, Massachusetts, we offer possibilities for medical and nonmedical volunteers to share their time and expertise in support of community response teams and assist the residents of 22 communities across north Worcester County during emergency events.
