Profile:
The University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC), through the Mississippi Center for Emergency Services (MCES), will recruit, train and maintain a roster of volunteers under the auspices of the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) to support, integrate and collaborate with the State Medical Response System (SMRS), local Metropolitan Medical Response System (MMRS), the State Medical Assistance Team (SMAT), Special Medical Needs Shelter (SMNS) program and local events hosted by metropolitan area local government and private business venues. The primary focus of the Central Mississippi MRC program will be to support the medical personnel staffing and logistical support staff needs for maintaining all of the aforementioned programs and activities and provide a centralized resource of trained and reliable volunteers available on a scalable basis for day-to-day activities, unscheduled incidents and pre-planned events. The Central Mississippi MRC will support the other specialized MRC teams in the state of Mississippi; Behavioral Health, Radiological Response, Animal Health and Mortuary Response. The Central MS MRC team will be further sub-divided into two units; a medical support team (MST) and a logistics support team (LST). The MST (medical support team) will focus on being trained and available for deployment with one of the SMRS/MMRS/SMAT/SMNS programs.

Additionally, all protocols of care will be reviewed and the individual team member will be provided an opportunity to learn additional technical skills to maintain operational readiness to provide all standards of care in their respective assignments. The LST (logistics support team) will focus on being trained and available with one of the SMRS/MMRS/SMAT/SMNS programs, specifically the Western Shelter equipment hosted by UMMC, including other medical and logistical support equipment, materials and supplies.
