What is the Public Health Reserve Corps? The PHRC is a community-based group of local medical and non-medical personnel who serve as volunteers during a public emergency. Volunteers also work in the community during non-disaster times, providing outreach to the underserved, supporting Healthcare for the Homeless, attending community events and supporting Red Cross shelters.
