The Region 1 HMCC has a 10-member Steering Committee, with 2 representatives from each of the 5 core disciplines. All Steering Committee members are selected from within their discipline, and are expected to represent the best interest of the region as a whole.
The Steering Committee provides broad coalition oversight and subject matter expertise regarding their disciplines’ concerns, structures, and regional coordination around preparedness and response. The Steering Committee ratifies the alignment of priorities for planning and preparedness, and works closely with HMCC staff to maintain a regional Emergency Coordination Plan that meets the needs of the various disciplines and communities in Region 1.
The W MA HMCC Steering Committee meets quarterly on a rotating basis throughout western MA. Steering Committee (and all other committee) meeting documents can be found here.
