At the local level, each MRC unit is led by an MRC unit coordinator, who matches community needs—for emergency medical response and public health initiatives—with volunteer capabilities. Local coordinators are also responsible for building partnerships, ensuring the sustainability of the local unit, and managing volunteer resources.

The MRC Program supports the MRC network by providing technical assistance, coordination, communications, strategy and policy development, grants and contract oversight, training, and other associated services. It provides information and best practices to help communities establish, implement, and maintain MRC units in order to achieve their local visions for public health and emergency preparedness.
There are 10 MRC regions and 10 regional liaisons across the United States and its territories. Regional liaisons collaborate with local MRC unit coordinators, state coordinators, medical and healthcare personnel as well as personnel at national, state, and local public health and emergency preparedness agencies.
