The Warwick Emergency Services Alliance (WESA) was established in 2001 with 10 member organizations.  This was a partnership of local government and volunteer emergency service providers dedicated to the continued support and success of the volunteer community for the region it represents.  In the summer of 2013, the partner municipalities of the Warwick Emergency Services Alliance adopted an Amended and Restated Intermunicipal Agreement that created a commission of individuals representing each of the emergency services providers and the municipalities. This newly created organization is theWarwick Emergency Services Commission (WESC). The members continue to promote and ensure the present and future vitality of our region’s volunteer emergency response organizations.

The WESC Board of Directors is composed of 13 voting members, consisting of 1 member of the governing body of each Municipality, 1 member from each Fire Company, 1 member from each Ambulance organization, and 3 citizens-at-large (1 from each Municipality). The Fire Commissioner is a non-voting member of the WESC Board of Directors.
