National Preparedness Month - Week 4
Get Involved in Your Community's Preparedness
As National Preparedness Month comes to an end, hopefully you have taken a step or two toward making your household a little more ready for the unexpected. If you could still use a pointer or two, check out Weston’s Community Emergency Preparedness & Response Guide online or pick up the booklet at the Council on Aging, Fire Department, or the Weston Public Library.
While it’s great for preparedness to start at home, our whole community can benefit from a little assistance from each of us. One easy step is to join the Weston Emergency Reserve Corps (WERC), an all-volunteer group of citizens who are willing, but never required, to help out in a community-wide emergency. Members can benefit from a range of training, practicing with Weston’s first responders, and staying informed about local, state, and federal readiness topics. And don’t worry if you haven’t gotten your own house in order yet - the WERC can help you do that too! Contact the Board of Health at 781-786-5030 to find out more.
