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?
