Statewide Drill Planned for Next Week

March 12, 2015

Next week our MRC unit will be participating in a statewide call down drill along with other MRC units and local communities using MA Responds. The dates for the drill are 17th, 18th, and 19th. Given that this is a drill, we will not be provided additional information or timing in advance. 

At some point during the drill our unit will be asked to provide support to another community. When the request for assistance is received, I will send a notification to ourvolunteers via MA Responds and you will have two hours to acknowledge the request. The notification will be sent to you via email, internal MA Responds messaging and a telephone call from MA Responds. You can reply via any of those options. There are no additional steps for you after your acknowledgement.

I understand that many of you work and have other commitments; however in a real world situation we would not have advance notice of an activation. Because we are using the phone feature, we want to make you aware that you will be receiving a call from our MA Responds system. 

In the meantime, please visit your volunteer profile and make sure your phone number is accurate! If you need to reset your username or password, please email Thank you for your participation in advance.
