Being Prepared Strengthens Your Community

Be Prepared for Anything

The next emergency is right around the corner. Don’t be caught unprepared! Keep yourself, your family , and your community safe through a wide variety of training that is provided at no cost for our members.

All Skills are Valuable

The word “medical” may be in our name, but it doesn’t have to be in your background to be a useful volunteer for our organization. Every emergency response situation requires a variety of skills to ensure that things run smoothly and effectively.

Make an Impact

We know that you won’t be able to help with every event or incident that comes up, but we’ll ensure that you can make an impact in the community by keeping you informed of volunteer opportunities as they arise. Then you can choose the ones that best fit your situation.

Empowering Our Community Through Emergency Response

We know the feeling of helplessness that comes with a disaster or unexpected emergency. It can have a devastating and long lasting effect on a community. Therefore, we take initiative and empower our community by providing extensive, free and ongoing training to prepare for the worst-case scenario.

MRC GEM on the Scene

Our services span from vaccinations and testing to emergency aid. Our organization has been able to respond to several crises in an effective and powerful way such as Hurricane Irma relief, emergency Tuberculosis testing and the most recent COVID-19 pandemic and Monkeypox outbreak response.

Powered By Volunteers

MRC GEM is a totally volunteer led non-profit organization serving the health and emergency preparedness needs of Georgia’s Gwinnett, Newton, and Rockdale Counties.

MRC is so important and essential to the work the Gwinnett Newton Rockdale Health Dept. does! MRC has truly been the backbone of our COVID response. 

Behind every one of our mass events, there has been an extraordinary volunteer team! The passion and energy MRC GEM volunteers have seems endless!
