The Eastern Nebraska/Western Iowa Medical Reserve Corps is a non-profit organization passionate about emergency preparedness/response and community health. We are one of 875 units around the country.

The Medical Reserve Corps is a "national network of local groups of volunteers engaging local communities to strengthen public health, reduce vulnerability, build resilience, and improve preparedness, response, and recovery capabilities."

MRC volunteers include medical and public health professionals, as well as other community members without healthcare backgrounds. MRC units engage these volunteers to strengthen public health, improve emergency response capabilities and build community resiliency. They prepare for and respond to natural disasters, such as wildfires, hurricanes, tornados, blizzards, and floods, as well as other emergencies affecting public health, such as disease outbreaks. They frequently contribute to community health activities that promote healthy habits.


Our MRC is always looking for new volunteers. Whether medical or non-medical, you have what it takes to make the community a better place.
