Central Georgia Medical Reserve Corps
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 thirteen counties in Central Georgia: Baldwin, Bibb, Crawford, Hancock, Houston, Jasper, Jones, Monroe, Peach, Putnam, Twiggs, Washington and Wilkinson.
The Medical Reserve Corps Program, sponsored by the Office of the Surgeon General, 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.
