HOW DOES THE MRC HELP?

The Hawaii MRC operates under the Hawaii State Department of Health. In a disaster, MRC volunteers may be activated to provide surge capacity to DOH and other emergency management partners. MRC members may assist in shelters, help distribute medicines, or provide information and assistance to the community in other ways as needed. During a disaster or other emergency, volunteer health care professionals are often called upon to fulfill essential roles such as providing medical evaluation and care, vaccinations or assisting with the distribution of medications. Volunteers also support preparedness activities such as community education and training.
