At the start of one
of the coldest and snowiest winters on record, our host agent
welcomed in the New Year with an office move. The Westford Health
Department (including the office of the UMV MRC Director) has
returned to the renovated Town Hall. This historic facility had
been closed for two years for structural repairs.
Westford Town Hall at
55 Main Street, after a recent snowfall.
The office of the UMV
MRC Coordinator, plus all MRC materials and displays, remain at
the Millennium School facility at 23 Depot Street, for space reasons
and for easier access.
Despite the move, our
unit was poised to respond during several major snow storms. MRC
leaders kept in touch with Emergency Management and other response
partners in each of the seven UMV communities. No call-outs were
required, as power outages did not last long enough to warrant
shelters. However, members received information on how to ensure
family preparedness throughout this intense season.
