Our mission is to partner with public safety officials to make our community safer and more able to handle natural or man-made disasters through volunteer training, education and planning. Some of the potential major disasters we might encounter are:
- Long-term power outages, road blockages, or hazards due to natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, major snow storms and floods, and lately cooling station at the library during extended heat waves
- Exposure to spills and/or hazardous materials (Route 495, with more than 50,000 vehicle trips per day, runs through the most heavily populated area of Boxborough)
- Pandemic flu; and
- Terrorist attack
We belong to the MRC Massachusetts Region 4a. All members are expected to complete ICS 100 and NIMS 700 training, which is available free on-line through the MEMA website, or at courses being held in and around our district. Other free trainings are available. Click here for more information.
Learn the Benefit of Getting Involved: For every medical volunteer, we need three or four non-medical – we are currently looking for both. Please contact Julie Pratt to request an application form.
