Monroe Emergency Reserve Corps comprised of volunteer member teams, who are trained in basic life, safety and emergency preparedness skills. MERC is community based, whose purpose is to assist the county of Monroe, Florida and its residents in the event of a major incident or large scale disaster, whether man-made or natural.
Beginning with ourselves, we will be prepared to work together as emergency response teams to assist our families, neighbors and community in a time of disaster or need through volunteer services which protect life, environment and property. We are committed to providing the best public service through education, training and volunteer service. Our vision is to support 1st responders with trained volunteers that organize themselves at the time of disaster or need and provide immediate assistance.
Due to the continuing COVID-19 epidemic all in person classes has been officially canceled.
Once the epidemic is handled Emergency Management and MERC will work to schedule the needed 1st time Placard holder training classes
including the first and first aid hands on.
At this time we are unable to schedule any classroom space as all buildings are closed and no reopen dates have been announced.
Be sure to check back for new classes after the stay at home order is lifted
