MD Responds Medical Reserve Corps (MRC)

The Maryland Board of Nursing encourages you to become a member of the MD responds Medical Reserve Corps (MRC).   Administered by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) and Office of Preparedness and Response (OPR), MD Responds MRC is the primary resource for emergency medical and public health volunteers for the State of Maryland.  The Maryland Licensing Boards are partnering with the Office of Preparedness and Response (OPR) to recruit and train MD Responds volunteers to respond in the event of a disaster or emergency.  This program under the Maryland Board of Nursing was formerly known as the Disaster Nurse Volunteer Program.
As a MD Responds MRC volunteer, you will gain access to a comprehensive disaster preparedness and emergency response training program with opportunities for continuing education credit, refresher courses, conferences, table-top exercises, drills and networking. Membership with the MD Responds MRC does not obligate you to volunteer if a disaster occurs. There are many reasons why one may not be available, such as family or work obligations at the time of the request.
We encourage you to to register with the MD Responds MRC at For more information about the MD Responds MRC, visit their website at, find them on Facebook, or e-mail the State MD Responds MRC program's office at
