The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a component of Citizen Corps, under the USA Freedom Corps initiated by President George W. Bush. In response to the outpouring of volunteer support in the days following September 11, 2001, President Bush called for all local citizens to serve in their communities by challenging them to devote 4,000 hours of time in volunteer service to others in their community. At this time he created the USA Freedom Corps (now known as United We Serve). This national initiative is made up of several components including Peace Corps, AmeriCorps, and Citizen Corps. Citizen Corps volunteers work to make sure their families, homes, and communities are prepared in the event of terrorism, crime, and disasters of all kinds. One specialized component of this effort is the MRC. Our volunteers are local citizens, who devote their time and effort to their local community.
