Seminars to help KP residents prepare for emergencies

Two emergency preparedness seminars are being held for Wrentham, Plainville and Norfolk seniors and disabled residents.

The first will be held Wednesday, May 1 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Plainville Senior Center, 9 School St. The second one, for Wrentham and Norfolk residents, will be held Tuesday, June 4 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Norfolk Senior Center, 28 Medway Branch Road.

The seminars, hosted by state Rep. Shawn Dooley, R-Norfolk, in partnership with the Massachusetts Office on Disability (MOD), will cover how seniors and disabled citizens can find the assistance they need in times of emergency.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the emergency response resources and procedures within their local communities and the steps that can be taken to personally prepare for emergency situations.

They will also receive free “Emergency Go-Packs” from MOD.

“Providing some of our most vulnerable citizens with the tools, training, and resources to help them in an emergency has been a focus of mine throughout my tenure as state representative,” Dooley said.

Register by calling the Plainville Senior Center at 508-699-7384, the Norfolk Senior Center at 508-528-4430, or the Wrentham Senior Center at 508-384-5425.
