You can never be too prepared. Here are some links to help you get ready for emergencies:
CodeRED is a telephone communication service that allows us to quickly notify citizens about emergency situations.
All citizens and business are encouraged to register. Brockton Emergency Management Agency will use the CodeRED system to notify citizens about emergencies such as:
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
2-1-1 is the national abbreviated dialing code for free access to health and human services information and referral.
2-1-1 is an easy-to-remember and universally recognizable number that makes a critical connection between individuals and families seeking services or volunteer opportunities and the appropriate community-based organizations and government agencies. 2-1-1 makes it possible for people to navigate the complex and ever-growing maze of human service agencies and programs. By making services easier to access, 2-1-1 encourages prevention and fosters self-sufficiency. It is also hoped that 2-1-1 will reduce the number of non-emergency calls inappropriately made to 911.
