Our Mission, Vision and Goals
is to be dedicated to establish teams of local medical and public health professionals and lay volunteers to contribute their
skills and expertise throughout the year as well as during times of community need.
Our vision is to use the
skills, knowledge and abilities of the Wachusett Medical Reserve Corps membership to meet an identified public
health need or emergency response.
goals are to use planning processes, developed policies and procedures, and training with response partners to:
- Recruit, enroll and maintain a corps of healthcare
and non-healthcare volunteers sufficient to respond to a public health emergency related to natural or manmade disasters or
emerging diseases in north Worcester County.
- Develop and maintain
a framework to match volunteers’ skills with the community’s needs, including medical surge capacity.
opportunities for volunteers to assist with non-emergency public health functions/initiatives, such as health education, vaccination
clinics and public awareness campaigns.
- Deliver comprehensive training opportunities
to volunteers through simulation exercises, classroom training and access to online education resources.
- Foster a culture
of acceptance, recognition of the value of volunteers, and utilization of volunteer staffing within north Worcester County.
