The Miami-Dade County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a team of pre-identified, trained and credentialed volunteers who augment local community health and medical services during disasters and other public health activities. These volunteers include physicians, nurses, dentists, veterinarians, pharmacists, other health and medical professionals, as well as others who are willing to support the MRC and Miami-Dade County.
When the health and medical capability of Miami-Dade County is overwhelmed during disasters and other health emergencies, the MRC is here to assist!
The Operational Level Response to HazMat/WMD Incidents course focuses on the unique personal protection challenges that responders face during a weapons of mass destruction (WMD)/terrorist incident or a hazardous materials incident.
