Pennington County MRC ( 1982 )

Profile:
The Pennington County MRC supports the Black Hills of South Dakota with an all hazards approach to identifying, training, and equipping volunteers to assist in time of a disaster. Severe weather to include blizzards, tornadoes, high winds along with other natural and manmade events can produce casualties, reduce available resources, and create panic. The PCMRC can assist in disasters by providing a ready force to look for opportunities to quickly provide care or support to impacted areas.
