The Tarrant County Medical Reserve Corps (TCMRC) was created to support the existing public health infrastructure in the event of a large-scale public health emergency and other times of community need.

To be most effective during emergency response, volunteers must be organized, trained, and pre-credentialed in order to rapidly integrate into existing emergency response systems. The TCMRC provides the organizational structure needed for managing volunteer activities before, during, and immediately following a large scale public health emergency.

In the event of a large-scale public health emergency, thousands of medical and non-medical volunteers will be needed to assist with Point of Dispensing (POD) site and/or shelter operations.

Our Mission:
The mission of the TCMRC is to establish a network of local medical and non-medical volunteers who are willing to assist before, during and after a public health emergency.

Who Can Volunteer?
Anyone meeting the following criteria is eligible to apply:

  • 18 years or older
  • In good health emotional and physical health
  • Has a valid email address
  • Has a willingness to assist the residents of Tarrant County

Volunteer Commitment:

The success of the MRC is based on the availability of its volunteers to respond in a timely manner when activated. Therefore, each potential volunteer should consider their family responsibilities, work commitments and any other possible limitations prior to volunteering.
