SENIOR CITIZEN ALL POINTS BULLETIN
May 10, 2012
It’s been a few months since I last wrote you. As we approach the summer, I can not stress how important it is to be prepared for severe weather. Last year’s tornado that struck Western Massachusetts should be a warning to us that the weather around here is changing. It’s very important to have a storm kit ready and a battery operated NOAA weather radio for emergencies. You can check out the NOAA website for a list of items that should be in a storm kit. The website is www.noaa.gov Radio Shack has several storm
radios that are very good.
Another safety concern this year is brush fires. The Dunstable Fire Department has already responded to a large brush fire in the area of the Arch Bridge off of High Street. All too often brush fires are caused by careless teenagers who make camp fires in remote areas. For our seniors who get out and walk our conservation areas, please let us know if you see any new or active camp fire locations. We will investigate and pass the information onto the Fire Department.
This June the Police Union will be sponsoring their annual senior lunch. I have already talked to the Council on Aging and we will be letting you know where and when we will meet. As always I’m sure it will be a good meal. It’s also a chance to share some laughs and reflect on past senior lunches that we have had.
Finally, in May I handed out several file of life products. If you did not get one or know of a friend who needs one, let me know. I have placed a few at the front desk of the police station. I will also bring more to the next senior lunch.
