FRAMINGHAM, MA - On Thursday April 29th, 2010 the Framingham Medical Reserve Corps is hosting a presentation on caring for your pets in emergencies. Director of Animal Control, Katherine MacKenzie, will be speaking about ways to prepare for and care for pets when emergencies such as storms or floods occur.

This event is being held in conjunction with the national "Get Ready!" campaign, a national effort that works to help Americans prepare themselves, their families and their communities for all hazards, including natural disasters, pandemic flu and other emergencies.

Following the presentation, anyone interested in joining the Framingham MRC can speak with members. The MRC is made up of medical and non-medical residents who volunteer their time and expertise to prepare for and respond to community emergencies and promote healthy living throughout the year.

Please join us on Thursday April 29 from 6:30 to 8 pm in the Ablondi Room of the Memorial Building.
