Volunteers Needed to Help Plan for an Emergency Shelter in Hamilton

Hamilton is in the process of developing plans to provide an emergency shelter in times of need and is looking for volunteers.

The Hamilton Board of Health along with the Fire Chief (serving as the Emergency Management Director) has been developing plans for an emergency shelter in Hamilton should the need arise. Part of the planning includes recruiting a group of volunteers from the community to help in opening and running an emergency shelter.

A small group of volunteers has met in the past year to learn about how Hamilton will operate an emergency shelter but the group needs more volunteers for the team “in order to be successful with this important effort,” according to the Board of Health.

If you would like to participate, plan to meet with the Board of Health on Tuesday, May 19 at 5:30 p.m. at the Senior Center, 299 Bay Road.  The Shelter Team usually meets every third Tuesday of the month for anyone who can’t make this week’s meeting.

If you would like more information about the shelter planning process or you would like to participate in the effort, call the Board of Health at 978-468-5579 or email Chris Lee at clee@hamiltonma.gov or Nancy Stevens at nstevens@hamiltonma.gov.
