The Town of Maynard Public Safety Communications Department (Police and Fire Dispatch) has initiated a new program to assist seniors living in the Town of Maynard. Having seniors in our community that do not have family or friends checking up on them regularly has led the public safety department to develop a “Senior Citizen Emergency Database Program”.
This program allows the public safety communications department to document in a computer database the names of senior citizens, where they reside, and important contact information. In addition, information concerning current medications and potential special needs during an unusual inclement weather event or natural disaster will be on file.
For further information, including how to sign up, please visit our Senior Citizen’s Emergency Program page.

The below is a request for donations from our fellow Officer Dan Collins of the Waltham Police Department:
“I’m Buzzing it Off for Kids with Cancer! Its that time of year again. I’m shaving my head in honor and support of kids fighting cancer, kids who don’t have the choice to lose their hair. Would you consider donating to my cause? By sponsoring my participation, you will help to ease the emotional and financial toll pediatric cancer takes on these amazing little fighters and their families. I am hoping to double the amount I raised during last years event.”
