MRC Volunteers

By completing the on-line application in the Colorado Volunteer Mobilizer, you give permission to inquire into your educational background, driving record and police record as well as hold the MRC harmless of any liability, whether civil or criminal that may arise as a result of the release of the information about you. You will also hold harmless any individual, agency, business or corporation that provides documents to the MRC. This information is used as part of the verification of your volunteer application. Please recognize that you will not be paid for your volunteer services. Your information will be listed in the MRC database in order to call upon you to provide services in times of disaster/crisis. You of course may decline to participate at your discretion.

After you have been accepted as an MRC team member, you will receive instructions for obtaining a photo identification badge.  This badge is used to identify volunteers’ affiliation with the MRCEPC unit and documents their personal identity.  ID badges are necessary to access disaster sites and areas where MRCEPC volunteers may be deployed. 

Please remember, should any information change, you will need to update that information with the MRC to assure our database is current and we are able to contact you.

Thank you for your willingness to make a difference in our community!

If you have additional questions, you can reach the Medical Reserve Corps of El Paso County office at (719) 591-2424.
