The mission of the Worcester Regional MRC is to provide public health volunteer medical services that supplement existing resources in case of disaster to the 74 cities and towns in Central MA. (see Service Area)
The Worcester Regional MRC was formed to promote public health and safety across Massachusetts Public Health
Region 2, in three key areas:
1) Public Health Emergencies: events that threaten public health, such as a disease outbreak or toxic chemical release.
2) Mass Casualty Incidents: disasters that cause injury or threats to large numbers of people. These can include a building collapse, fire, storm, flood, or other event that displaces groups of residents that must be moved to emergency shelters.
3) Community Service Activities: opportunities to foster the well-being of local residents; such as health fairs, blood pressure clinics, or training programs.
