Emergency Communications & Management

Richard H. Fiske, III, Director

About Us

The mission of the Department of Emergency Communications is to enhance the quality of life of every person in Worcester by receiving and processing 911 emergency calls and non-emergency calls by dispatching the appropriate emergency responder units in a prompt, efficient, courteous and professional manner, to help save lives, protect property and assist the public. We strive towards making Worcester a safer community in which to live, work and visit.

The Emergency Management Division develops, coordinates and leads the City's Emergency Management Program, enabling effective preparation for, and efficient response to, emergencies and disasters in order to save lives, reduce human suffering and reduce property loss. To accomplish this mission, the Emergency Management Division:

  • Develops plans and procedures to ensure the highest levels of mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery.
  • Maintains a comprehensive, risk-based, multi-hazard emergency management and training program.
  • Coordinates Federal, State and Local resources for mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery operations.
