Capitol Region Medical Reserve Corps ( 54 )

Profile:
The MRC unit in the Capitol Region provides volunteer health professionals to assist in treating mass casualties and first responders in the region. The CR-MRC's goals are to: (1) recruit units of doctors, nurses, physician assistants, EMTs, medical administrators, dentists, veterinarians, mental health workers, pharmacists and other health professionals; (2) document their credentials; and (3) provide training that establishes core competencies,and includes participation in mass casualty exercises. The CR-MRC has secured a director and a medical director; established a badge/identification process, and participated in a multiple drills and exercises. In one exercise, all major hospitals and corporate aircraft and crews in the region participated in evacuating burn victims, and the CR-MRC established a command post within 45 minutes and deployed a platoon to treat special needs victims of the power outage and another platoon to treat burn victims. Since that time we have been called for a POD, a public safety/public health event, a shelter exercise, and a Pan Flu/ACS drill. We continue to refine our "teams" according to discipline and have identified "team Leaders" who can work more closely with their members.
