Brookfield Resident Medical Emergency List
The Brookfield Council on Aging and the Brookfield Emergency Squad are asking for your help so they can better help you.
We realize that many of our residents rely on medical devices that are electrically powered – breathing, testing, and even medications that need refrigeration. The recent power failures showed that people need a plan to fall back on in cases like that – generators, reliance on relatives and/or neighbors.
What we would like to have is a list of people that have such needs so that we can keep those people in mind. This won’t mean that you shouldn’t have a plan; you should. The recent events – tornadoes, tropical storm, the ice storm of a few years back, even an earthquake – really reinforce the need for people to plan.
You don’t need to prepare for everything but you should be ready for something!
If you or a family member wish to be on this emergency list,
you may call either Barbara Clancy at 508-867-6043
or the Ambulance office at 508-867-6036.
You will need to give the following information:
Power-dependent medical need
Names/numbers of other Brookfield contacts
