Before a disaster, get involved and become familiar with community resources:
Citizen Emergency Response Team (CERT) - This is a program of the Brookline Emergency Management Team that provides free training so you can help yourself and your neighbors after a disaster.
Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) - The MRC brings together people who have skills related to health care as well as residents with other skills. MRC members serve as a team during times of emergency or need in their own community
Emergency Preparedness Buddies Program (EPBP) - The EPBP helps elders and adults with access and/or functional needs prepare for and respond to emergency situations, thereby improving preparedness and resilience among elder residents.
