Mission Statement of the Fulton County Medical Reserve Corps:
“To serve the citizens and communities of Fulton County by providing health care, education and assistance in times of need.”
The Medical Reserve Corps provides an opportunity for volunteers with medical skills, mental health skills, and a variety of other specialties to provide support during a public health emergency in Fulton County and the surrounding region. Licensure in the medical field is not a requirement to join the MRC.
The Fulton County MRC membership is open to anyone 18 years and older that is a legal U.S. resident. Members must apply and be approved through the Fulton County Health Department and Ohio Responds. Application for membership can be found here https://www.ohioresponds.odh.ohio.gov/.
Any MRC member that will provide some level of medical care is required to have been, or currently be licensed and/or certified and must work within the scope of their licensure. Non-licensed MRC members are requested to at minimum have or obtain a nationally recognized CPR/first aid certificate. Assignments within the MRC will be made according to a member's current level of licensure/certification. Members should participate in meetings, exercises and actual mobilizations.
Members are required to maintain a valid Ohio Driver's license and remain free of felony and serious misdemeanor convictions.

The Fulton County MRC does not discriminate with regard to race, gender, ethnicity, or physical capability.
