Worcester Emergency Communications Team (WECT)

WECT is a voluntary amateur radio emergency communications organization. Membership is free. Their membership is comprised mostly of FCC licensed operators, i.e., "hams" who volunteer their time and expertise to the City of Worcester Emergency Management and other local served agencies such as the American Red Cross as well as local charity groups. Regionally within Worcester County and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, they serve as the MEMA Region 4 Amateur Radio Station, and also serve in this capacity for gathering SKYWARN Weather Reports for the National Weather Service.

Visit the WECT website for more information.

Worcester Regional Medical Reserve Corps (WRMRC)

The Worcester Regional Medical Reserve Corps is a committed group of volunteers, with or without medical backgrounds, who keep their communities safe by responding to public health emergencies. Recent events have taught us that all towns and cities need to be ready for anything, including natural disasters, terrorism and disease.

Visit the Worcester Regional MRC website for more information.

American Red Cross

The American Red Cross provides disaster assistance across the United States for incidents varying from house fires to large-scale mass casualty incidents.
