The FRCOG serves as the sponsoring agency/fiduciary of a 94-town Western Massachusetts Health and Medical Coordinating Coalition (HMCC) funded by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. The HMCC coordinates public health and healthcare system emergency preparedness, and provides regional coordination in times of disaster, in the four westernmost MA counties (Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden, and Hampshire). As the sponsoring organization, FRCOG provides the HMCC with dedicated staffing for program management; project facilitation and oversight; meeting administration and support, and fiscal administration.
