Preparing for the worst

Posted by Ralph Ranalli June 12, 2007 07:55 AM



About forty volunteers have already signed up for the Norfolk Medical Reserve Corps, but the town is still looking for about 60 more volunteers, said Selectman Jim Lehan.

Lehan, who is also chairman of the council that oversees the corps said the volunteers will assist in preparing for and responding to public health emergencies. They met for the first time last week and their next meeting will be July 12, he said.

Volunteers will be trained in CPR, first aid, and how to follow a chain of command in emergencies, Lehan said. Information about joining the corps is available from the Selectmen’s office or the Board of Health office at Town Hall.
