Prepare yourself and your family to be ready in the event of an emergency.
In recognition of September being National Preparedness Month, the Brookline Health and Police Departments invite you to a unique evening program to learn how to prepare yourself, your family, and your home for an emergency.
Refreshments will be served.
Members of Brookline's Emergency Management Team will present the components of simply and inexpensively putting together emergency preparedness kits. Attendees will be given an emergency “starter kit”, which includes a carrying bag, flashlight, and some other small items. Staff from the Police and Health Departments will outline simple steps to help residents be prepared for a wide-range of emergencies, including weather and man-made crises, and will educate attendees on what is currently in place at the town level to prevent, respond to, and recover from emergencies. The program is free and open to the public.
To register for the program, or for more information, please email Dawn Sibor at the Brookline Health Department or call 617-730-2656.
