Shelters - What to Bring

In the event you need to evacuate your home, you need a place to go.  You need to work out a plan before the need arises.  The best plan is to make arrangements with family or friends to stay with them.  You will be more comfortable and with people you know.  If a community shelter is open, it should be your last resort
