Welcome to the Texas Disaster Volunteer Registry

Thanks for your interest in volunteering to serve in Texas. Licensed healthcare professionals and lay persons can register as volunteers to support the public health and medical emergency preparedness and response at the local level. This registration system collects basic information about you and your licensure* (if applicable).

*Please note: If you need to reactivate a medical or nursing license, contact the Texas Medical Board or Texas Board of Nursing for details, and please complete that process first, before you register to volunteer on this site.

We strongly encourage you to join the nearest Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) Unit, if one is located in your area. You can learn more and find Units in your area by visiting: Texas Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) or the national website: National MRC Website

All organizations within the system are locally based.
