While emergency shelters provide a safe place to stay and minimal food, specialty items for infants and individuals on restricted diets may not be available. It may take several days until permission is given by local authorities to re-enter an evacuated area.
Bring these items with you to a shelter:
Baby food and diapers (for a week)
Battery-powered radio and extra batteries
Blankets or sleeping bags
First aid kit
Flashlight and batteries
Identification and valuable papers (copies of insurance papers, passports and other essential documents)
Prescription medications (for a week)
Toiletries (for a week)
Emergency Shelter Transportation
Transportation to an emergency shelter will be provided on a limited basis if you have no other means to get to a shelter. Call the Georgetown County Emergency Management Division for information on when transportation will become available.
