Health and Medical Coordinating Coalitions
Bringing together local public health, healthcare organizations, and other regional partners in order to strengthen and promote emergency preparedness and response capabilities of the region and to share resources.
The Massachusetts Region 3 Health and Medical Coordinating Coalition (MA Region 3 HMCC) is a regional collaborative effort between the five core disciplines, which include:
- Public Health
- Emergency Medical Services
- Community Health Centers
- Long-term Care Facilities
Why is joining the MA Region 3 HMCC so important?
Whether there is an emergency or disaster that affects a single community, multiple communities, or the entire region, there will need to be a coordinated response by various disciplines in order to ensure the health and safety of its residents, the community and/or the entire region. The MA Region 3 HMCC focuses on a coordinated, all hazards strategy that encourages our 49 member communities to combine enhanced regional and local planning, resource sharing, training, and realistic, capabilities-based exercises. Within this framework of regional cooperation, the MA Region 3 HMCC supports mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery efforts within the region.
Planning together saves lives!
