Are there any fees or costs to volunteer?
There are no fees to become an MRC volunteer. Costs for two uniform shirts per volunteer and First Aid training will be covered by the MRC. The Medical Reserve Corps will also cover the cost of Continuing Education Unit (CEU) credits for required trainings and exercises that volunteers must attend. If a volunteer wishes to pursue CEU hours for any non-required training courses offered, the volunteer will be responsible for the cost of the CEUs.
