Understanding Mission Ready Packages for MRC Units

The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials has created a factsheet to highlight the role of MRC units in Mission Ready Packages (MRPs), which are specially created asset bundles used in disaster recovery and response. MRPs are defined as “specific response and recovery capabilities that are organized, developed, trained and exercised prior to an emergency or disaster” (Emergency Management Assistance Compact, 2014). The use of MRPs is a major component of the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC). Using the EMAC system, states can request or deploy equipment, personnel (including volunteers) and other resources through MRPs to assist in disaster recovery efforts. Learn more about the role of MRC units in MRPs in this factsheet.
