Bear River Medical Reserve Corps

​Serving Box Elder, Cache and Rich Counties in Utah


​​The Bear River Health Department oversees Medical Reserve Corps units in Box Elder, Cache and Rich counties of Northern Utah. Each unit is made up of both volunteer medical professionals and volunteer support staff who can help when our local hospitals, public health departments and emergency medical systems are overwhelmed. Members are pre-identified, pre-credentialed, pre-trained and prepared to respond so vital time isn't wasted doing those things when their help is needed right away.
​​​​We recognize that volunteers have responsibilities and obligations to their families, employers and others. We also recognize that your time is valuable. Our MRC programs host two training days each year and occasional exercises throughout the year. We also occasionally test our messaging and deployment system via email, text and telephone. Nothing is mandatory. We simply ask that you ​participate when you can and that you respond to our messages.
​​​It's easy. Just visit our statewide registry, Utah Responds, and complete your profile. Remember to mark the appropriate MRC

​program (Bear River MRC for Cache and Box Elder Counties, Bear Lake Responds for Rich County) when it asks for organizations you want to join.
