Region 4A MRC was formed to promote public health and safety across the region in three key areas:
Public Health Emergencies – events that threaten public health, such as a disease outbreak or toxic chemical release.
Mass Casualty Incidents – disasters that cause injury or threats to large numbers of people. These can include a building collapse, fire, storm, flood, or other event that displaces groups of residents that must be moved to emergency shelters.
Community Service Activities – opportunities to foster the well-being of local residents; such as health fairs, blood pressure clinics, or training programs.
