The EP Buddies Program was designed to help elders and adults with access and/or functional needs prepare for and respond to emergency situations, thereby improving preparedness and resilience among elder residents.

This program matches Brookline MRC and CERT volunteers with Brookline elders to help identify preparedness needs, set up communication plans, and prepared supplies for potential evacuations or sheltering.

More information available in the EP Buddies Program Brochure.
