Citizens of Southborough,

Please stay tuned to this and other Town & Local media websites for updated information from the Southborough Emergency Management Agency (SEMA).

As with past storms, SEMA needs your help with gathering situational awareness so please use these web-based mediums to report power outages and damage, etc. We are limited on staff so your reports will help us prioritize our resources effectively.

Please also understand that with our limited staff and the forecasted scale of damage emergency crews will most likely be delayed for emergency calls and non-emergency (service type) calls may need to be pushed off until after the event has passed

Most importantly, please be safe both indoors and outdoors and have pertinence – we will get through whatever Mother Nature dishes-out together.

Stay Safe and Stay Tuned.

Neal Aspesi
Director of Operations
SEMA
