The law requires that all MRC Volunteers also sign a Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) and Sex Offender Record Information (SORI) form. Please print and return both forms. Your photograph will be taken for your badge when the completed forms are returned. Effective January 1st, 2017, the Framingham volunteers database will be maintained in office and no longer in MAResponds.
Get Ready for Home Emergencies
Only 7% of Americans are adequately prepared for an emergency. Natural disasters, disease outbreaks and other hazards can occur at any time. September is National Get Ready Month. Have a "texting drill", to help get ready. For more info on getting ready for emergencies go to the American Public Health Association's website.
Preparedness for Kids
Sesame Workshop, along with its project partners, has created Let’s Get Ready! A video about planning together for emergencies with tips, activities, and other easy tools to help the whole family prepare for emergencies!
