Civil Preparedness

We are dedicated to emergency preparedness for all residents of the Town of Marlborough, including our business partners and surrounding communities.


There are several things you can do for your family to be safe in the event of an emergency.


It is never too soon to have an emergency plan, but it can be too late.  Don’t wait!  Preparing an emergency kit, identifying safe shelter, knowing how to evacuate, and making sure you can receive emergency alerts are a good start.  We are here to help!
