Welcome to SC DPH Medical Reserve Corps. You are registering in Better Impact (previously SCSERV).


Do YOU want to help when a disaster strikes?

Do YOU want to help prepare the community for emergencies?

If so, you have come to the right place!



Volunteers are needed during an event with health and medical consequences to assist with a variety of needs.  These are examples of what you can do to help:


  • Provide registration, screening or dispensing in a Point of Dispensing


  • Assist with a vaccination clinic 


  • Help people with medical needs in a Medical Needs Shelter


You can also help people prepare for emergencies with these activities:


  • Teach “Stop the Bleed” or “Until Help Arrives”


  • Provide information to people at Health Fairs or community events


  • Participate in Exercises 


Please complete your application in Better Impact to begin the process of becoming a volunteer.  We look forward to having you in the Public Health Reserve Corps!



You can make a difference by being ready to respond!


Let's get started by selecting the county you reside in listed to the left of this page.
