  • State Medical Response System

    The University of Mississippi Medical Center is a partner with the Mississippi State Department of Health to coordinate the State Medical Response System (SMRS) during a declared disaster. The SMRS will be activated by the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency as an ESF-8 resource.

    The team may also be requested to respond to major events across the United States from coordinated requests through emergency management agencies.

    The SMRS has two field hospitals with each having a build-out capacity of providing a 50-bed facility, or can be combined to provide a single facility of over 100 beds during disaster events.
