Shelters and Evacuation

Public shelters should be considered “shelters of last resort” with very basic provisions for a safe and dry environment and limited meal capabilities. Residents should bring personal items and identification for you and each of your family members. Pet owners should also bring medications and/or food for special dietary needs.
