The State Medical Response System (SMRS) is a partnership to strengthen the capability of local hospitals to respond to disasters and other emergencies.

The SMRS coordinates a variety of resources, ranging from medical equipment to specially trained staff, that can be shared by hospitals and state agencies when responding to the exceptional demands of emergencies or disasters.

The mutual aid and training provided by the SMRS allows hospitals to increase their capacity during a local or statewide emergency, ensuring better care for local residents who require emergency medical assistance.

The SMRS is coordinated by the Mississippi State Department of Health and supported by the Mississippi Hospital Association.
