About REVC

About REVC

The REVC was first established in March of 2014 with funding support from the Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors, Inc., (CRCPD).  In February of 2016 the organization became part of the US Department of Health and Human Services Medical Reserve Corp.

As the organization for the coordination of radiological response volunteers on the state level, when requested, the REVC is in a unique position to provide people trained in radiological emergency response to assist with operating and staffing population monitoring points at various locations.

North Carolina Emergency Management, through its Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP) Program provides program management and helps to integrate the REVC with ongoing planning, training, and exercise activities involving the State’s nuclear power facilities. The NC Department of Health and Human ServicesDivision of Public Health and Division of Health Service Regulation, through the Radiation Protection Section, provide operational support, and technical guidance. Additionally, the REVC is supported by a partnership with the North Carolina Chapter of the Health Physics Society, and North Carolina’s eight regional Healthcare Preparedness Coalitions (HPC) administered by the Healthcare Preparedness Program. Volunteers largely consist of radiation safety professionals and health and medical professionals from supporting county-level MRC units, but also includes employees of the divisions listed above and other agencies such as the NC Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
