Governor Baker Proclaims “Hurricane Preparedness Week”
Governor Charlie Baker has proclaimed July 16-22, 2017 to be Hurricane Preparedness Week to underscore the Commonwealth’s vulnerability to tropical storms and hurricanes and the importance of preparing for the impacts that hurricanes and tropical storms can have on the state’s residents, homes, businesses and infrastructure.

MEMA, in coordination with FEMA and the National Weather Service, is pleased to announce two offerings of the 2017 Hurricane Preparedness Webinar to assist emergency management and public safety partners in preparing for the 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season.
Emergencies often happen without advance notice and when first responders are not nearby. After calling 9-1-1 for help, consider being an active bystander and providing emergency care and assistance. Learn about the Stop the Bleed and Until Help Arrives campaigns, and what it means to be an active bystander at Get Involved and Be an Active Bystander.
This important access program will allow local and state public safety leaders to facilitate entry of credentialed members of the private sector into areas that are otherwise off limits to the public because of disaster or emergency conditions. To learn more and enroll, visit www.ceas.com/ma.
