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 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.

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. 
  • Develop and maintain a framework to match volunteers’ skills with the community’s needs, including medical surge capacity.
  • Provide 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.
