Mission Statement

The MMRS National Leadership Group supports local and regional inter-disciplinary efforts to build and sustain All Hazards Emergency Medical Readiness throughout the United States to prepare for, respond to, and recover from mass casualty incidents.


The National Leadership Group is chartered by participating MMRS jurisdictions. The NLG's authority is founded on the active participation of MMRS program managers and the assessment of their jurisdictions that the NLG represents their interests, concerns, and values.

The NLG operates to express the value of, and advocate for, adequate resources for locally and regionally managed mass casualty preparedness:

  • To build and maintain coalitions addressing mass casualty capabilities
  • To document and disseminate information about mass casualty preparedness projects
  • To build and maintain coordination with Federal and states’ mass casualty preparedness planning and programs
