The mission of the Harris County Gateway to Care Medical Reserve Corps is to strengthen public health, emergency response and community resiliency of Harris County by organizing and utilizing public health, medical and other volunteers.
- Community: All disasters are local and volunteers are needed to pull the community back together after a disaster.
- Preparedness: Training to prepare volunteers for all hazards. Volunteers should have personal or family preparedness plans in place to protect their loved ones while they respond.
- Training: Adequate training enables volunteers to respond and act safely during a disaster.
- Collaboration: No one agency or group can work effectively alone; we must work with a broad spectrum of other organizations and agencies for the greater good of the community.
