Brookline Emergency Management Volunteer Opportunities

Brookline Town Seal

The Brookline Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) and Brookline Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) invite new volunteers to join more than 300 medical and non-medical Brookline emergency response volunteers.  Brookline MRC and CERT volunteers are neighbors preparing to help neighbors.  


Join us on Thursday, September 13th from 6:00-7:30pm for a short informational session, and meet current Brookline MRC and CERT volunteers.   Light refreshments will be served.  We will meet in the Denny Room (lower level) of the Health Department Building, 11 Pierce Street, Brookline.


The purpose of both the Brookline MRC and CERT programs is to provide volunteer services to assist Brookline during emergencies or disasters.  Volunteers also assist with various events held in town throughout the year, including the Boston Marathon and annual seasonal flu clinics.  Free training is offered on topics focused on emergency preparedness and response; some trainings offer nursing and EMT continuing education credits.  MRC and CERT programs are part of the federal Citizen Corps program.
