Minnesota Mobile Medical Team (MMT)
The Minnesota Mobile Medical Team (MMT) is composed of volunteer medical and support professionals who have received training and practice in providing acute medical care in a mobile field environment.
When a community experiences a tornado, flood, or other incident that temporarily overwhelms its ability to provide healthcare services, the MMT can deploy in a variety of ways: either with equipment needed to establish a range of clinical services or without equipment, to support staffing needs in existing care facilities.
Minnesota Mobile Medical Team is a project of the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). The MN MMT is comprised of members from all over the State. We meet face to face quarterly for training and team building.
Persons interested in joining a team can register with Minnesota Responds Medical Reserve Corps.
