MCI Trailers

In 2003, The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) awarded Region 1 two (2) mass casualty incident trailers, complete with MCI associated equipment, utilizing funds from the federal granting authority HRSA for their purchase. These trailers are a regional as well as State asset available for services to utilize for large scale incidents.

The Mass Casualty Support Units in Region 1 are strategically located in Amherst and Pittsfield and are used as a support system for Mass Casualty Incidents within Massachusetts EMS Region 1 and Massachusetts. They offer CMED communications and medical supplies for major disasters twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
