Fall 2019 Brookline MRC

Trainings and Events

**SEPTEMBER IS EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS MONTH!!**

“Preparedness improves public health and safety, can help minimize property damage and the economic impacts of disasters, and can accelerate the disaster recovery process.”- Governor Charlie Baker

 

All emergency volunteers and their families need to be prepared

before they can go help others.

 

Don’t forget to check your emergency kits/go bags:

Replace medicines, batteries, and food as needed. What might you need to add?

 

This is also a good time to review your communication plans:

Have any of your contacts or phone numbers changed?

Does everyone have a hard copy of the plan, in case phone batteries die?
