Are you ready for an emergency? Many local governments and other agencies are encouraging residents to include a "go-kit" in their emergency planning. These kits include supplies that would be of use in case you needed to evacuate your home quickly, such as a radio, batteries, food, etc.
The Chelmsford Board of Health and the Upper Merrimack Valley Medical Reserve Corps are working to help local residents have go-kits ready and waiting. The groups have purchased supplies in bulk, to make it easier for local residents to prepare their own 72-Hour Emergency Kits. Not only can residents taken advantage of the discounted pricing, but materials have been selected and collected in one place, ready for pick-up.
The kits are available for $50, and the cost covers a backpack, emergency disaster guide, crank flashlight and radio, tarp, tent, and numerous first-aid and emergency supplies.
Register by calling the Chelmsford Board of Health at 978 978-250-5241. To pre-pay for your kit, send a check for $50 made out to Town of Chelmsford and drop it off or mail it to the following address:
