There is a chance that MRC volunteers could be called up by a State or Federal Authority to respond to a larger regional incident. This type of mission would be controlled and coordinated by the Office of Civilian Volunteer Medical Reserve Corps (OCVMRC). This office is tasked “to develop procedures that will be used to deploy willing, able, and approved MRC volunteers outside their local jurisdiction as part of the federal response to public health and medical emergencies”. This would usually not be as a unit but individuals or small groups who are willing to accept this role. Again it would strictly be on a volunteer basis. In the past the only MRC members in the state that have been called out have been medically trained individuals: IE: Doctors, Nurses, EMT’s etc.
