IN CASE OF EMERGENCY
Please stop by the Senior Department offices or the Fitness Front Desk to fill out an "Emergency Form." These will only be used just in case something should happen to you while participating in a JCC program or working out in our facility, and we need to know whom to contact on your behalf (closest relative, preferred hospital, doctors number, etc.). If you have filled one out in the past, please complete a new one so that we have the most current information available.
