Central Georgia Medical Reserve Corps

Volunteer for Your Community

The Central Georgia Medical Reserve Corps (CGMRC) was founded to enhance the emergency capabilities of Central Georgia through the advanced registration, organization, and training of volunteer health professionals. The mission of the CGMRC is to assist and supplement Central Georgia communities with health care volunteers in response to situations that overwhelm available resources. The CGMRC covers all 13 counties of NCHD.

The Medical Reserve Corps Program, housed within the Readiness Division, Office of Emergency Management and Medical Operations, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), was launched in 2002, and now has over 700 local units throughout the United States and the Pacific. It is a partner program with Citizen Corps, a national network of volunteers dedicated to ensuring hometown security. Citizen Corps, along with AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and the Peace Corps are part of the President’s USA Freedom Corps, which promotes volunteerism and service nationwide.


The CGMRC is now recruiting practicing, retired, or otherwise employed medical, nursing, allied health, dental, public health, mental health and veterinary medicine volunteers, as well as non-health care volunteers wishing to serve in specific support roles. Consider joining today!

CGMRC and Functional and Access Needs

CGMRC’s medical focus is particularly concerned for individuals with functional or access needs because these individuals often require additional planning for emergencies. To assist individuals with planning, CGMRC has developed a presentation specifically designed to teach participants how to create an emergency plan to fit their medical needs. The course, Emergency Preparedness for Functional and Access Needs Populations, is around an hour long, but can be adjusted as needed. To request a presentation for you organization, call 478-751-3029.
