These caches were developed with funding from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety and Security – Office of Grants and Research and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. They serve as one method of leveraging Federal emergency preparedness and homeland security funds the Commonwealth receives, by ensuring first responders and health and medical facilities and personnel have a properly maintained stockpile of PPE and other medical supplies readily available on a regional scale to address larger than routine emergency events, as well as PPE and medical supply shortages that may occur.
The caches are strategically located at two different locations in the region, the NERAC Cache Site in Beverly, MA and NEEMS’ Headquarters in Amesbury, MA.
