Preparing for the worst

Posted by Ralph Ranalli October 9, 2007 09:39 AM


The Millis Board of Health is seeking volunteers to join the town's Medical Reserve Corps, which would be called into action in case of a public health emergency.

The group was started earlier this year and has about 30 members, town Health Director Alyssa Rusiecki said. Rusiecki said the town needs a total of about 60 to 75 volunteers
in an emergency. Volunteers don't necessarily need prior medical training, she said.

"We'll need people to help with organizing people, help move people along, help people with their forms, etc.," Rusiecki said.

The group will meet at the Veterans Memorial Building on Oct. 17 at 7:30 p.m.
