Proposed Project: Medical Reserve Corps Unit Profile and Reports (Extension)—OMB No. 0990-0302—Office of Public Health and Science/Office of the Surgeon General/Office of the Civilian Volunteer Medical Reserve Corps (OPHS/OSG/OCVMRC).

Abstract: Medical Reserve Corps units are currently located in over 800 communities across the United States, and represent a resource of more than 170,000 volunteers. In order to continue supporting the MRC units in communities across the United State, and to continue planning for future emergencies that are national in scope, detailed information about the MRC units, including unit demographics, contact information (regular and emergency), volunteer numbers, and information about activities is needed by the Office of the Civilian Volunteer Medical Reserve Corps (OCVMRC). MRC Unit Leaders are asked to update this information on the MRC Web site at least quarterly, and to participate in a Technical Assistance Assessment at least annually. The MRC unit data collected has not changed. This OMB extension request is for 3 years.
