    Important Information in the Event of an Emergency

    1. Sheltering
    2. Transportation
    3. Hospitals
    4. Fire Stations
    5. Local Resources
    6. Non-Emergency Numbers
    7. Evacuation
    Sheltering is appropriate when conditions require that you seek protection in your home, place of employment or other location when disaster strikes. Sheltering outside the hazard area could include staying with friends and relatives, seeking commercial lodging or staying in a mass care facility operated by disaster relief groups.

    Sheltering in Place
    Choosing to take shelter where are is necessary in many emergencies.

    American Red Cross
    During an emergency, the American Red Cross may work with the City of Santa Rosa and County of Sonoma to establish and operate designated mass care shelters. 

    Even though mass care shelters often provide water, food, medicine and basic sanitary facilities, you should plan to take your disaster supplies kit with you so you will have the supplies you require. Mass care sheltering can involve living with many people in a confined space, which can be difficult and unpleasant. To avoid conflicts in the stressful situation, it is important to cooperate with shelter managers and others assisting them. Keep in mind that alcoholic beverages and weapons are forbidden in emergency shelters and smoking is restricted.

    The City of Santa Rosa with American Red Cross and other agencies has identified City Community Centers, High Schools, Middle Schools and other facilities to help address sheltering needs for our community and for special, access and functional needs individuals and groups. During and/or after an emergency, information on those facilities will be provided through public press release releases.
