When submitting comments or requesting information, please include the OMB control number 0990-0302-30D for reference. Proposed Project: Medical Reserve Corps Unit Profile and Reports (Revision)-OMB No. 0990-0302—Office of the Secretary/Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health/Office of the Surgeon General/Division of Civilian Volunteer Medical Reserve Corps (OS/OASH/OSG/DCVMRC) is changed to Office of the Secretary/Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response/Office of Emergency Management/Division of the Civilian Volunteer Medical Reserve Corps. This reorganization was effective as of 26 November 2014 as published in the Federal Register [FR Doc. 2014-28030 Filed 11-25-14; 8:45am].

Abstract: Medical Reserve Corps units are currently located in almost 1,000 communities across the United States, and represent a resource of more than 205,000 volunteers. In order to continue supporting the MRC units in communities across the United States, 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 Division of Civilian Volunteer Medical Reserve Corps (DCVMRC). 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 expanded to include a self-assessment tool for use by unit leaders to aid in developing their MRC unit. This OMB revision request is for 3 years.
