The Groton Council on Aging Outreach Program works in collaboration with Groton Police, Groton Fire and Groton Emergency Services.

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

To keep Groton senior citizen residents 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 end of August when you receive your Groton Electric Light bill, you will find an emergency preparedness form enclosed 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.
