Volunteers Building Strong, Healthy, and Prepared Communities

The need for trained supplemental medical and public health personnel to assist with emergency operations was highlighted after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Many medical and public health professionals sought to support emergency relief efforts, but there was no organized approach to channel their efforts. The MRC program provides the structure necessary to deploy medical and public health personnel in response to an emergency, as it identifies specific, trained, credentialed personnel available and ready to respond to emergencies.

The Nebraska Volunteer Registry, also known as the Emergency System for Advance Registration of Volunteer Health Professionals (ESAR-VHP) and the Medical Reserve Corps are partnering together to provide first responders and emergency managers with a database of health professionals.

The ESAR-VHP system:

  1. registers health volunteers,
  2. applies emergency credentialing standards to registered volunteers,
  3. allows for the verification of the identity, credentials, and qualifications of registered volunteers in an emergency.
