Medical Reserve Corps About the Medical Reserve Corps TXSG (Medical Rangers)

In March 2003, the Texas Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) officially became part of the Texas Military Forces (under the Texas Adjutant General) at the express direction of the Governor of Texas, and is cosponsored by The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and other state-supported health science centers.

The goal of MRC is to respond to Texas public health emergencies including biological terrorism and natural epidemics. Its membership consists of trained, licensed and indemnified health professionals and medical support volunteers who train and prepare to support lead public health authorities with surge and specialized emergency skills. Texas Medical Rangers serve in team response and as individual cadre who assist and train other volunteers, augmenting the emergency response efforts of public health authorities.

The MRC program expects to grow to over 1000 volunteers statewide with units to be located in Austin, College Station, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Edinburg, El Paso, Fort Worth, Galveston, Harlingen, Houston, Laredo, Lubbock, McAllen, San Antonio, Temple, Tyler, Victoria, and Waco. In addition to these cities, the Medical Reserve Corps may establish a detachment or company in other cities or areas where 20 or more enlist and an element commander is selected and commissioned.
