Mississippi Veterinary Medical Reserve Corps ( 1599 )

Profile:
The MS Veterinary Medical Reserve Corps (MVMRC) is part of the MS Animal Response Team (MART), for which the State Veterinarian has oversight and responsibility. The MVMRC is composed of the organized, trained and credentialed MART volunteers that support state and local animal health, public health, and emergency management response. The MVMRC members are primarily private veterinary practitioners and animal health volunteers that work collaboratively with State and Federal animal health personnel to fulfill specific functional positions within the MART ICS structure. The training the MVMRC members have received has been supported by the MS Veterinary Medical Association and the Mississippi Office of Homeland Security, as well as the MS Board of Animal Health. Training and recruitment of MVMRC members is active and ongoing.
