The Groton Council on Aging Outreach Program works in collaboration with the Groton Police, Groton Fire and Groton emergency services.

Over the last few years, we have experienced some very severe weather that has left many without power, heat, food, water, medications, air-conditioning, transportation, etc.

In order to keep Groton senior citizens as safe as possible in a severe weather emergency, we have created an EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS FORM for senior and/or disabled residents to fill out. All information remains confidential and is kept in our database. In the event of such an emergency, you will be contacted to make sure that you are safe and have what you need, i.e., medications, food, etc.

At the beginning of September when you receive your August Groton Electric Light bill, you will find a blue Emergency Preparedness Form enclosed in with it. Some of you may have already filled out this form, but please return this new one to me with any changes.

If you have any questions, feel free to call me at 978-448-1170.
