Thursday Schedule Detail
Session Name: Mass Care~~The Shelter Transition Process
Shelter transition is the process by which shelter residents are transitioned to appropriate housing after a disaster. The American Red Cross and the Federal Emergency Management Agency organized a multi-agency and multi-jurisdictional working group in order to create documents that describe the process and make best practices available to local jurisdictions. The purpose of this Workshop is to provide an update on the focus and direction of the Working Group in addressing this important issue. During the workshop, facilitators will share examples of the complex shelter transition issues that many jurisdictions faced after the flooding in Louisiana in Aug 2016 and in the Carolinas after the impact of Hurricane Matthew in Sep 2016. A multi-agency team will present on what they learned from their participation in this process.
