Massachusetts Region 4A Medical Reserve Corps
Massachusetts Region 4A MRC
Region 4A MRC was formed to promote public health and safety across the region in three key areas:
Changes to the Regions: 4A and 4B Preparedness Region Uniting under HMCC!
Region 4A MRC and Region 4B MRC to REMAIN INDEPENDENT!
In 2015 the process of uniting the Emergency Preparedness Regions of 4A and 4B began and was formally settled as a combined Health and Medical Coordinating Coalition (HMCC) in 2016 as Metro_Regional Preparedness Coalition (Region 4AB). The Medical Reserve Corps of each region (4A and 4B) have NOT merged. There remains a 4A MRC and a 4B MRC. The merger of the Emergency Preparedness Regions of 4AB reflect joint efforts of 5 CORE DISCIPLINES: Community Health Centers, Public Health, Hospital, EMS and Nursing Homes. This HMCC discipline unification will provide for timely assignment of care assets during emergencies and are recognized as 6 distinct HMCC's across the Commonwealth.
