Good News Franklin!
The Steering Committee and volunteers of FISH of Franklin are pleased to announce that, after more than a year of suspended services due to COVID-19, our volunteer service of providing rides to medical appointments for Franklin residents will begin again in May.
There will be some new requirements in order to keep our volunteers and clients safe:
- all clients must be fully vaccinated and finished with the two-week waiting period following vaccination in order to receive a ride
- all drivers will also need to be fully vaccinated and finished with the two-week waiting period
- drivers and clients will be required to wear masks
- clients must be able to walk and to enter and exit vehicles and doctors' offices without assistance
Any Franklin resident who wishes to access this service should call the FISH line to request a ride, and leave a message with name, phone number, date and time of the appointment, and location of the appointment. The client will receive a call back from a volunteer. FISH is not an emergency service, and anyone with a medical emergency should dial 911.
FISH phone number: (508) 528-2121
FISH of Franklin is a service provided by volunteers age 21 or over, and more are always welcome! Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer should contact Chris at 508-553-3023.
We have missed you and look forward to resuming our services!
