Our Mission, Vision and Goals
Our mission 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
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.
Our 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.
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.
